So I sometimes get in these moments where something boggs down my thoughts. Something that could potentially change my life. I feel like I'm in one of those moments right now. It's probably nothing, but I let my mind think as far in advance to all the possibilities and it won't rest until I have confirmed answers. I hate these moments. There is nothing I can do to change anything and yet my heart and my mind race because of the potential problems. It's a fight to completely trust the Lord.

As I was faced with this issue this afternoon and I felt myself jumping into those unbridled thoughts, the Lord conveniently brought Matthew 6:27 to my mind - "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" This truth has been rolling around my brain for the last few hours and it brings great peace. However, I have to forcefully make that thought take over the other thoughts and it's not always easy.

I guess it comes down to a matter of trusting that God is good. My verse sent to me this morning from KLOVE was Psalm 37:23 "The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives." (NLT) What an amazing promise that I have so many times prayed and thanked the Lord for...but it's in these unknown moments that that truth treasure of God knowing the details of our lives proves great joy and comfort!!
