God wants me to rejoice today and to refuse to worry about tomorrow- to anticipate blessings, claim His promises, and accept difficulties as they come knowing that He will lead my way. God’s Love lets us live above circumstances even while we’re knee deep in them. His peace guards our hearts and minds.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. (2 Corinthians 4:17)
Learn to trust Me when things go “wrong”. Disruptions to your routine highlight your dependence on Me. Trusting acceptance of trials brings blessings that far outweigh them all. Walk hand in hand with Me through this day. I have lovingly planned every inch of the way. Trust does not falter when the path becomes rocky and steep. Breathe deep breaths of My Presence, and hold tightly to My hand. Together we can make it! -Adapted from: Jesus Calling, Sarah Young
The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights. (Habakkuk 3:19)
In no way is it enough to set out cheerfully with God on any venture of faith. You must also be willing to take your ideas of what the journey will be like and tear them into tiny pieces, for nothing on the itinerary will happen as you expect. Your guide will not keep to any beaten path. He will lead you through ways you would never have dreamed your eyes would see. He knows no fear, and he expects you to fear nothing while he is with you. –Annie Porter Johnson
God’s Promises are stamped in nature as a constant reminder of His Presence. Stop and watch for it- it’s the ladybug, the butterfly, the eagle soaring overhead. Breath it in. Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord.
