If your life is uncertain and filled with difficulties, be encouraged! God is not asking you to handle your entire life all at once. More often than not, your what-if imaginings about the future turn out altogether differently. Instead of being anxious, choose to concentrate on today. With God’s strength and grace, you will make it.
You can also choose to pray and draw near to the God who loves you unconditionally and promises to take care of you. Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” God loves you and wants you to rest in Him.
Let today be the boundary for your fears and worries: “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things” (Matt. 6:34). And if the going gets tough, concentrate on making it through one hour at a time without anxiety. Faithfully follow Jesus one step at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time.
Father, today I give You praise and thanks. Every circumstance brings me to my knees before You because You are the Author of my life. You are Creator, King, and Savior. I am blessed and privileged to be Your daughter. Amen.
