“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Prov. 3:5-6.
“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Matthew 6:34.
A new day dawns, uncharted and unknown.
We know not what this day will bring, but we do not walk alone.
When we put our trust in God, His promise is secure.
That He will guide each step we take and lead us through each door.
Each circumstance that we face will be filtered by His love.
We need not fear or question, for He is watching from above.
Our thoughts sometimes deceive us, but He knows what is best.
And as we yield ourselves to Him, He’ll take us through each test.
We won’t worry about tomorrow, for we know He holds today
And trusting Him with all our heart, we will follow all the way.
One of the things that I have been learning through this time of isolation is to just live in the present, to take one day at a time. We have no idea how much longer we will be practicing social distancing. There is no sense in us wishing we could make the days go faster, so that we could get back to our so-called normal living. One thing we do know is that the Lord is in control and He knows exactly what this day holds for us.
So, I am learning more and more how important it is to commit each day to the Lord. Reading the Bible, worshiping the Lord, and spending time in prayer is the best way to start any day. Then we can face whatever comes during the day, leaning upon His promise to direct our paths. We do not need to worry or be concerned about tomorrow, because the Lord already has it planned, and He will always be a step ahead of us, leading the way.
“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23.
Prayer: Jesus, we give this day to you, for we know that what you have planned for us is far greater than anything we could plan for ourselves. Help us to live one day at a time, trusting in you.
