It's a bird! It's a plane! No
it's a Morrison?! On the next DOWN GILEAD LANE, Tim's not happy about being left in charge of Hope when both Mom and Dad are busy. But a trip to the abandoned radio station to hear some old "Meteor-Guy" radio adventures serve to prepare Tim to be the hero and the big brother Hope needs him to be. How will Tim handle the job? And will Hope be able to let go of control and trust when she needs to?
How about you
Do you ever have trouble with taking responsibility when you need to, or is it hard to let go of control and trust someone else to do something for you? Both of these situations require peace, courage, and widsom.

Another word for "peace" is "serenity". A long time ago, a gifted poet named Reinhold Niebuhr wrote the Serenity Prayer which you may have heard or seen printed. Part of it goes like this:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
See how peace, courage and wisdom are required to handle the different situations life throws at us? And the best way to find the kind of wisdom needed to "know the difference" is to put our trust ultimately in the One who is best suited to guide us. Remember what Proverbs 3:5 and 6 says:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.
