God's Got This

Hi Cove Church! My Name is Becca Stutzman and I get to be group coordinator for our MOPS and momsnext group here at our church and just wanted to share a short thought with you today. A couple weeks ago we had a birthday at our house so we've had a couple of these helium balloons floating around our house. Our daughters have had fun playing with them. Of course if the balloons are not weighted down, they will end up floating up to the ceiling. In that case, our daughters will get frustrated and we've heard from the other room, sounds of jumping and some grunting and some frustrated sounds and at times we've heard furniture moving around. In all those scenarios, my husband and I will walk into the room and see what's going on. And our daughters are basically trying to get to the bottom of the string of the balloon so they can reach it. Well our ceilings are not very high, but they are high enough that if the balloons drift to the ceiling, it doesn't really matter what our daughters do, they’re not going to be able to reach the bottom of the string. It’s just too high for them. But for my husband and I who are a couple feet taller, it's really not that big of a deal. We just walk in the room, grab the string and give them the balloon. This scenario has repeated itself over and over quite a bit the last couple of weeks.

A couple days ago, the same thing happened. I heard my daughter in the other room. She was starting to get frustrated, I walked in, she was jumping up trying to reach the bottom of the string of the balloon. And I walked over to her, grabbed the balloon, gave it to her and said, “Honey, it’s ok, you don’t need to be upset! It’s really not that high for mommy and daddy. It’s not a big deal. Just let me know, I’m happy to get this down for you.” And in that moment, I was reminded that I often view my problems like those helium balloons.

The solution is just out of my reach and it doesn’t really matter what I do, I’m not going to be able to solve it. But I'm jumping and I'm grasping and I’m frustrated and at times moving furniture around trying to figure out how to solve the problem. When really what I need to do is stop and ask for God’s help. Jeremiah 32:17 says, “Sovereign Lord, you’ve made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm, nothing is too hard for you.” So today, I just want to take a minute to encourage you with those words. Whatever you’re going through, whatever problems seem outside of your reach, out of your grasp, God is right there and nothing is too hard for him. So with that, I hope you take care and have a great day.
