I woke up this morning praying - sometimes God "wakes" me up thinking about someone or something and I know that it's what I need to pray about. Usually, if I'm honest, its the thing I've "worried" about all night in my sleep.
Today I woke up praying - God I give it all to you - my life, my job, my family, everything.
In my "brain" I know that's what I need to do. I need to give it to God and trust that things will be taken care of - it may not be how I would have fixed it, but ultimately, it will be taken care of the right way - God's way.
Two of my favorite Bible verses tell/remind me of God's plan for my life:
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6
and"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" - Jeremiah 29:11.
But, like a lot of things, sometimes by "brain" and my "heart" don't seem to be on the same page.
Right now I'm repeating these two verses over and over in my head - and trying to "let go" of the things I'm worried about - because honestly, in each situation that worries me, there's absolutely NOTHING I can do except TRUST God.
That's where I'm at. Still evolving. Wondering where this new year (ya know that birthday thing was a week ago) will take me.
Remembering one important fact (thanks Maxie Dunnam for "burning this in to my brain" at Asbury).....
God is good - All the time.
