I have Sarah Young’s day calendar sitting on my kitchen counter.
Today, the very first words were TRUST ME ONE DAY AT A TIME. Sometimes I just know when God is speaking directly to me. Don’t dwell in your past. Don’t stress over your future. Walk with Me, one day at a time. One moment at a time.
Trust is not easy on most days, especially when the seas of life are choppy…and the waves of worry are crashing hard. When I take my eyes off Him, I start to drown. Sadly, my typical response is not to trust God. Not really. Oh, I say I do. I want to trust, but it just seems easier to think of ways that I can make things better. What I can do to change things. I stress myself. I make myself sick. I worry.
God calls me over and over again not to trust myself, but to trust Him, keeping my focus on Him, the One who has the power to calm any storm. When the waves of worry grow high, and I feel like I am surely going under…..He says, “TRUST ME”.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
