I often find myself thinking in “fast-forward.” That scares me.
With three young children and busy jobs, Hollianne and I are constantly trying to make decisions on the fly. Decisions that impact the future for our kids, household and careers.
We wonder if our choices are the right ones.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations. Jeremiah 1:5
This verse from the book of Jeremiah gives me comfort, however.
While I tend to worry about decisions- I need to remember that God already has a plan.
He has a plan for me. He has a plan for Hollianne. He has a plan for each of you. All of us are “consecrated” – or set apart for service.
Instead of worry, I need to pray for wisdom and guidance- and trust in the Lord for support along the way.
My prayer for today is to have the faith and assurance to let go of the worry focused on the future…and to trust in the Lord.
What causes you to worry about the future? Whatever it is, give it to God.
Let me know how I may pray for you.
God bless you.
