I am beyond honored to share some life-giving thoughts from my lovely sister Katie Deck in today’s guest post. Katie is wise, caring, and immensely talented and creative. (You can follow her as she paints and draws beautiful artwork on Instagram at @katiedeckstudio.) With anxiety being a particularly relevant discussion during these strange times, Katie has some very helpful ideas for helping us find peace. We pray that these practical thoughts will help and bless you in your walk.
What do we do when life comes to a halt?
When emptiness grows
And activities are slowed
When work is on hold
And the doors are closed
Lord, change my heart.
Replace my desire to hustle with a heart that desires holiness.
At first, everything was fine. Normal. Peaceful, even.
The breeze was light. The water was calm. It was just the right weather for sailing. Or for falling asleep to the sound of lightly lapping waves after a long day.
