Too often we get caught up in the day to day activities of life. We obsess over our workday before we even get to work, and while we’re there, we obsess over what needs to be done at home. We have many choices ahead of us each day and we can sometimes let the one choice that truly directs our steps to go unchosen. Friends, this is a dangerous place, and one I know all too well. Sometimes our diligence and faithfulness in our jobs and family life can cause us to forget how faithful and merciful God is. Life encroaches, it happens, we need to remember to push back and sit in the presence of God. Often.
Today’s Jesus Calling by Sarah Young:
As you look into the day that stretches out before you, you see many choice-points along the way. The myriad possibilities these choices present can confuse you. Draw your mind back to the threshold of this day, where I stand beside you, lovingly preparing you for what is ahead.
You must make your choices one at a time, since each is contingent upon the decision that precedes it. Instead of trying to create a mental map of your path through this day, focus on My loving Presence with you. I will equip you as you go, so that you can handle whatever comes your way. Trust Me to supply what you need when you need it (Lamentations 3:22-26; Psalm 34:8).
