Grandmother is walking around singing. Wondering in her mind, “what is wrong with my family? She continued to sing her song softly, and walked around, grabbed her grandchildren and hugged them. The younger grand’s, looked into her eyes with joy. Still, she did not say a word to her daughter in law or son.
Later that evening when everything appeared to be much calmer, grandma asked Annie her daughter -in-law if she would like to go to the market with her. Grandma wanted to make dinner for the family. Annie replied, “Sure mother Reatress, I would loved to go.”
Therefore, they left for the market. Annie said, “Mother, thank you for the song. Everything is so different since we moved here. Homer is working all the time and Jylan have been very different, I really don’t know what is going on with that child. Grandmother Reatress said, “What is wrong with Lucille, she seem so confused.
Mother before you walked in we were arguing, and I addressed some things that has been going on. Since we moved here, it seems that all the structure we had is gone. Your son does not like his new job, but I reminded him, he is the one who wanted to move here. We were fine where we were. Lucille or Jylan does not like the schools here, and I have been helping Susan keep her children when I can. That is why they were at the house when you walked in.
Why did you come in singing Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee?” Mother Reatress responded, this is the song we would sing together every evening before we ate dinner. Don’t you remember? Her daughter in law replied, “Yes, I remember and everybody would hold hands, then we would bless the food, and eat. It is such a peaceful song.
Mother Reatress told her daughter-in-law, when challenges come into your life, it’s not personal, they visit every body, but you just don’t make them feel at home. This is what you must remember; praise can always outlast a storm. Don’t stop singing your praise songs, and playing scriptures in the house. Jesus will give you peace, even when the storm is raging.
Don’t forget the story of Job, some people thought of him as you poor thing, don’t have anything, but the Lord delivered him and he saw 150 more years, plus four generations of peace and prosperity. Your problems will never be bigger than your God.
