today I am thankful for my devotional.
Anxiousness, doubt, worry, and anger were swirling in my head. Plans—that hadn’t even been made— weren’t what I had “planned” in my head. I was needing, maybe even craving time alone… and yet, that is not what I was happy with. I wanted. more. stop. I opened my devotional and was slapped … er, greeted(!?) with this:
Leave outcomes up to me. Follow me wherever I lead, without worrying about how it will all turn out.
Come to me, and Rest in my Peace. … As you lean on Me in trusting dependence; you feel peaceful and complete.
Thank you, Lord, for proving you are here. You are here a step before us. You have already fought this fight. And, out of grace, you have provided me with the tools I will need today. I just need to be open to you and to the good stuff. and stop entertaining the poor, negative and messy. Thank you. How he loves us…
