Those words kept skipping over and over as a broken record on an old phonograph player with the needle stuck. Where had I heard them before? Oh, yeah…It was a song.
What truth was it trying to speak?
Isn’t it funny when we pray, we sometimes feel we are butting our head against a wall for answers that won’t come as quickly as we would like? So we keep praying for light to be shed on the subject.
I personally love when I can feel God speaking through a verse of scripture. The exact solution to the problem, completely revealed. ‘Easy peasy. Lemon squeezy.’
It seems God loves to give little clues here and there. Like a loving father who won’t easily give up the answers to that math problem or crossword puzzle, (because that would be cheating) but will do His best to help us find the answer on our own.
“Therefore, stop worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself…”
(Matthew 6:34 CEB)
Time and time again, God reminds us with questions of His own. Why do you ponder so? Why do you feel you must know every little move I make? Control every outcome. Can’t you see I feed the sparrows without fail? Daily. That means ONE day at a time.
Faith looks beyond what it cannot see.
It hopes for today. And tomorrow does the same.
Our part is looking to Him. He has always been faithful. He has come through every single time, in every situation possible.
Focus on what He is doing right now.
- Seek Him first.
- Slow down. Take time. BREATHE
- Wait. Don’t work yourself into a frenzy.
- God will help you handle the here and now.
- All these things shall be added to you.
- Take courage.
- Stay steadfast.
- Hold on to your hope.
- Sing praises.
- Find strength in joy.
- Let His Words lead you on.
- Watch your triumph unfold.
He’ll finish all He’s begun.
All will be revealed in time.
He never shows up too late.
