“Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.” –Bob Goff
Encouragement and Prayer for today. Father, lift our heads to see you. Even in the midst of uncertainty and the unknown, we are known by you. You hear every one of our cry. You see and know every one of our pain. We don’t have to be strong in front of you. Because I’m our weakness, you make us strong. We come to you knowing we will be comforted, but also our chapter isn’t over. We won’t look downcast on our current situation, but be reminded that goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our lives. We look to you. The story is unfolding. You have good plan for us. This is just a chapter in the moment of our lives. Amen. #pray #love #jesus #encouragement #faith #hope
I was driving the other day as I ran a few needed errands. Praying as I drove. I prayed about the day. The state of our nation and world. People who are out of work. People who are infected. People who need hope and security.
Then this scripture cane to me.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
He reminded me that I am not suppose to be anxious for anything. I am suppose to be making my requests known with thanksgiving. He hears us when we pray. He is not hard of hearing. He is not complacent. He sees us and hears us.
What if the prayers of your past year are about to be answered. What if you dreams and desires are coming. He is faithful and he is working things out, even in the midst of chaos and disorder in the world, he still lives and revives His children.
As I was giving my requests to God that day, I had the peace that He hears us and He is still working things out in all our lives. He is the God that makes ways in the wilderness and streams in the desert. Trust His process. He didn’t do this to us, but He will make a way out.
