There is so much going on in our lives that I literally can’t focus on all of it at once or I become overwhelmed to the point of desperation. Have you ever been there? I instead find it much easier to just take life hour by hour and focus on what’s right in front of me. There can be negatives to that but right now it’s helping me stay calm and carry on if you will. If I take life day by day and trust God with what’s on the agenda for today I can remain in Him, walk in His power and remain peaceful. Maybe that’s why in the Lord’s prayer he modeled to pray for your daily bread. We don’t need to focus on what we need a month or year down the road but just today. Trust in Him today. I think Jesus knew what he was talking about, crazy I know.
Here’s the verse that sits in my window right now in front of my sink. I put it there because I spend a lot of time there. It’s my prayer for myself and for you.
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the rock eternal. Isaiah 26:3,4
