“Many things feel out of control.” – First paragraph of today’s devotional, and it immediately caught my attention.
“Your routines are not running smoothly. You tend to feel more secure when your life is predictable.” – BINGO! That’s me! I’m all for adventurous life… but I’m a controlled risk taker… and I like controlled adventure! One thing that’s for sure, God has thrown a lot of curve balls in my life, and my life is NEVER without a dull moment! This is alarming for a control-freak like me… but over the years, I’ve learn to let go of things I CANNOT control, and learn to laugh through life!
“When you are shaken out of your comfortable routines, grip My hand tightly and look for growth opportunities. Instead of bemoaning the loss of your comfort, accept the challenge of something new.” – This is exactly what I’ve been trying to do… but it’s a lot easier said than done. I can’t wait to find out God’s new challenge for my life… but some days, I’m more riddled with anxiety than trust. I shall dwell on this for the rest of the day… while life throws me more unpredictable, uncontrollable curve balls! Learning to go with the flow, and trusting in God.
From the ends of the earth,
I cry to you for help
when my heart is overwhelmed.
Lead me to the towering rock of safety,
for you are my safe refuge,
a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.
Let me live forever in your sanctuary,
safe beneath the shelter of your wings! (Psalm 61:2-4)
