Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Psalm 143:8
I have read this verse over and over this morning hoping that something profound and meaningful would come into my head and I would be able to write a post that would speak to my readers. Maybe today’s post needs to be something that speaks to me.
I am hurting, sad, worried, and filled with uncertainty for my future. In my heart I have put my trust in the Lord and at times I feel an overwhelming confidence in His plan for my life and the goodness that He will bring. But then there are times my thoughts and fears get in the way and I find myself anxious over the concern that things won’t work out. That my hopes will be shattered and my heart will never beat again in the same way.
I find myself allowing fear to control my thoughts. I know this is not a reflection of trust, so I then find myself discouraged, feeling less than worthy because I have allowed my fears to take root. I have to learn to take my thoughts and fears captive and entrust my life to the Lord.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.
Oh Lord that I hold this verse ever present in my thoughts.
