So how’s your story shaped up this week? You knew it was coming and sort of dreaded the unknowns of what you knew would happen. It’s okay isn’t it? It came and it went and you’re still here in real time and in real life and you have so much to be thankful for. You’re Still in one piece although there were moments you wondered about! Good for you! It wasn’t you though it was just that awesome grace that God gives so generously to His creation and created things. Yeah, He graced us this week and led us through those unknowns. It wasn’t a problem for Him. He knew the unknowns in the path and managed them ahead of us. That’s just what He does. I love how He does it?
It’s those unknowns isn’t it? Those little things that catch in the apprehensive corners of our minds and take us off guard. They send us reeling off track and out of control when our fears get hung up on mistrust and doubt leading us into anxieties that should never arise. There’s so much happening in the world and so much crazy happening in our world with stuff out of our control. Anxious thoughts creep in and frazzle our hearts and minds, leaving us weak and rendering us useless. We forget that our power is not in ourselves and our control of the situation! Oh how quickly we forget, in our humanness and insecurity that it’s our sovereign God who is faithful to see us through the hard places. To grace us and make a way for us to face the day of unknowns.
In Psalm 94: 18, 19, the psalmist’s experience of slipping, contrasts with God’s promise to stand with him. “I cried out, “I am slipping!’ But your unfailing love, O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” God stands by His own and He’s so faithful all the time. He calls us to be strong and courageous even in the difficult and the unknowns of this life. His words to Joshua in 1:9, He says to us today right were we are ~
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Trust Him beautiful soul and find peace. He won’t let you go! The battles you face, you won’t face alone. His mercies are new every morning. Let Him open them up and disperse them into the precious moments of your day. ~k
