“Come to Me, and rest in My loving Presence. You know that this day will bring difficulties, and you are trying to think your way through those trials. As you anticipate what is ahead of you, you forget that I am with you – now and always. Rehearsing your troubles results in experiencing them many times, whereas you were meant to go through them only when they actually occur. Do not multiply your suffering in this way! Instead, come to Me, and relax in My Peace. I will strengthen you and prepare you for this day, transforming your fear into confident trust.”
I definitely needed that this morning. I had woken up on and off last night worried about the events of today.
Trusting is not my strong suit. I’m a planner and with the 109384457 things going on right now, I am struggling not to try and plan out each day and the next (and the next, and the next…). I haven’t succeeded in doing this, yet I still try.
I am learning. I am learning to say, “Thank you God for the path you’ve already set before me” and then to let it go and just walk that path. Am I good at this? No, but I am learning.
