We are headed home from the beach today. I feel refreshed and rejuvenated, ready for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Rejoice and thank the Lord for all he has done for us. It may seem like the world is falling apart, but it is falling into place, just as God planned, so don’t fret over what you see and hear; much of it is only stories that cause anxiety.

As you set out to conquer your day, know that God goes before you and is also your rear guard. The task at hand may seem daunting, but God makes everything possible.
In Numbers 34, God told Moses the boundaries of Israel and allotted each tribe their land. God knows in advance the boundaries of your dwelling place and expects you to be content with all he gives you; when it is time for you to expand, he will make it known. Continue to praise and worship him until his plan unfolds.
