I was sharing with Amanda the other day that one of the most important lessons that the Lord has shown me over the last two years is to take one day at a time.
I am a planner. I am a very detailed and organized person. I’m sure that I drive people crazy sometimes because of my desire for excellence and perfection. I like all of my ducks lined up in a row….a perfectly straight row!
But for me, that all changed 2 years ago. Some drastic life events left me completely out of control of so much that I was used to controlling. I couldn’t plan ahead and see my way out of some very important issues in my life.
That’s when Matthew 6: 25-34 became real to me. It wasn’t worth it for me to stress and worry about the future. I am only responsible for the present, because I really don’t know what the future holds……but I know WHO holds the future. And because He holds my future, I will be fine.
One of my favorite lines in Star Wars Episode I comes from a scene in which Qui-Gon Jinn has his ship stranded on the desert planet of Tatooine. With no idea of what to do, he makes the simple declaration that another solution will present itself.
When I don’t know how things will turn out, I know that because of my trust and faith in the Lord, He will always present another solution that will be the best and all that I need…..maybe not for what I can see of the future, but for today and right now.
That’s ok with me.
