Today, I feel nervous and unsure. Overwhelmed at the thought of how I can carry out the many desires of my heart. I question if I am good enough, skilled enough, smart enough, to do what I think God is asking me to do.
I wonder how much of it are my selfish desires and if they align with God's expectations at all. How do I know I'm in His timing? How do I measure the pace of life according to His will? What should matter, NOW?! Do I qualify? Jesus, how?
And then, I am reminded by a piece of jewelry, my bracelet.
I see the cross, and my heart wells up with hope and comfort at the reality of God's love for me. I can relax in the knowledge of what I have in Jesus; He covers me, He restores me, I can do ALL things through Him. I don't have to strive. I can lean on His grace. I don't have to have it all figured out, He already did. He tells me to seek Him; He tells me what to do, how to do when to do, my response, listen and obey; look and follow.
I am led to read Proverbs 3: 3-6 & 25-26.
My concerns, fears, anxious thoughts, and uncertainties quiet down.
I remember, again, I need to lean on Him, I need to trust Him, and He will guide me. Jesus, you are my confidence, and you will keep me from messing things up.
So, I walk away with my head lifted.
AND. SO. CAN. YOU
