O For Grace to Trust Him More

Philippians 4:6-7

Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Thought for the Day:  Trust Him right now in this moment

“Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him! How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er; Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O, for grace to trust Him more!” These are the words that came to me this morning as I was anxious about how to get a lot done in a very short time, especially one thing that caused me worry and concern. God has recently flung wide a door for Mark to get a new and wonderful position that is exciting for all of us. As I reflect and over the things that need to be done to first move him to another town and then to prepare things for me to move at a later time, I get very anxious and I begin to worry. “Will I be able to get a teaching position?”, “Will I be able to sell or give away enough to be able to pack?”, “Will we be able to get the house ready to sell?”, “How will I handle working and taking care of my boys without Mark?”, and “Will we be able to pay for two houses with their monthly utilities?” I awoke early this morning feeling very tired knowing I needed to go back to sleep but sleep would not find me. Mark reminds me over and over that God took care of the “Big” thing in opening that door for a new ministry position and that God will take care of the little things that seem so big right now. I know that in my heart and I know that I have to turn it over to God where He can take the lead.

So, “Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him! How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er; Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! ‘O for grace right now in this moment’ to trust Him more.”

Prayer:   Our Father, thank you for loving me in a way that a father loves a child. In these days of worry and concern, please be with me every step of the way as I already know You are. Please go ahead of me, beside me, and behind me where I will always feel you near. Amen.
