Can you believe it?  The month of May has passed!  Now comes June.  I like how it is put in Ecclesiastes 3: "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven....a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted....a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance...."  How about you?  Are you going through a time of sorrow, mourning, weeping?  Or maybe you are going through a time of laughter and dancing!  Jesus brings different things our way to help us grow.  He wants your heart.  He wants you to come to him and praise Him when times are going well, and praise Him when times aren't going so well.  Your problems may seem bigger then the laundry pile you have to help with today.  (Or maybe bigger then that grass you have to cut!)  But, you know what? God has it all in His hands. He's watching you, and if you simply trust and obey (there's no other way), then "your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly."  (Matt. 6:6)  Keep going even through the hard times!  Persevere.  There is song I love that goes, "When I consider the heavens, the works of thy hands, O Lord why art thou mindful of them?  When I look at God's creation, O Lord it speaks thy name!  My problems look small in the light of it all my worries begin to fade....He told us the worries of this life are briars and toils and snares.  They'll pop up like bad weeds, choke up the good seeds, leaving us baried in cares.  The only way out, then, is upward.  That's where our help can be found!  Cause He's got a plan and it's all in His hands, the blues they won't stick around."  So don't worry. Instead, rest on His amazing love!  He'll carry you through the good times - and the bad.
