What I Know

I was thinking about this Scripture passage ("Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you" ( 1 Peter 5:7) when I jotted these thoughts. 
  • I don’t know about tomorrow. Sometimes I wish I did.
  • I don’t know whether or not the sun will shine, or it will rain again.
  • I don’t know if times will get easier or if we’ll lose what we have again.
  • I don’t know if anything will change tomorrow, or if everything will. Sometimes I wish I did. .
But I don’t know.

What I do know is that I serve a God who is more than faithful.
  • I know that God is able.
  • I know that God is good.
  • I know that God does not forget.
  • I know that God’s way is best.
  • I know that God stands behind the promises written in the Bible.
  • I know that God is Jehovah Jireh, the God who has a thousand ways to provide for us that we can’t even imagine.
  • I know that whatever happens today, whatever happens tomorrow, God will take care of us.
  • Most of all I know that God already knows.
  • God knows our needs before we ask.
  • God knows the desire of our hearts.
  • God knows what we can take.
  • God knows the little things that mean so much to us.
  • God knows what is best, more than anything.
  • God knows about tomorrow and holds it, and each day of our future in capable and loving hands.
Troubles come like rainstorms. They drench the heart, and leave a chill that lingers after the rain is gone. But the same rain that drenches and that sometimes chills, waters the ground so that life may go on. It gives vital moisture so that when the sun shines, new life will spring up. Flowers will bloom and birds will sing again. And every little droplet becomes a diamond of hope in the sun.

“Worry is blind, and cannot discern the future.”  But God can, and does. And out of our circumstances, out of our failures, out of our troubles, God will bring beauty, hope and new life.

And so I choose to trust God: with yesterday’s brokenness, today’s fears, and tomorrow’s unknowns. I trust God with the sorrows and with the joys of today and with life’s unpredictable twists and turns and the uncertainty that it sometimes brings. I choose to trust God with my heart, my life, my family. I trust God with my home, my abilities, with my everything.

And God gives: Wisdom for this moment, strength for today, fresh, new hope for tomorrow.
