Just thinking about the complications in our lives…
Sometimes it feels as if there are a million loose ends in our life… (yes I know it’s a slight exaggeration). Sometimes it feels like things are unravelling or that we know in time they will unravel. What will happen when…? What will I do if…? What about…?
We don’t know what to do now, we don’t know what we will do when and if things unravel like we imagine. Sometimes they never end up unravelling….
The one thing that I hold onto when I feel like this is my faith. My belief in God’s best plan for my life. I have seen him come through in every situation I have faced… No I don’t know why, I don’t know how, I don’t understand it all, I don’t understand a lot of it but I will trust in him, and if you have those situations in your life that s the best thing you can do too.
We can’t change so much in our life. There are things we want and things we long for but some of them just will never be…
I am content to know that God will bring the things, and allow the things and people in my life that are meant to be there and I pray that He will always have His way over me having mine. He knows best….
This verse comes to me… I am especially reminded of this when I feel that there are a lot of things out of my control. I remind myself that God is the one that holds everything together. There is no way, not with any earthly power that I could hold things together!
And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). [Prov. 8:22-31.]
So for all the complicated things in my life and yours I offer this prayer…
Lord in you we hold together. Lord in you we consist and we are complete. Thank you Lord that in your mighty hands you hold all the ends of everything in our lives. It’s not too much for you.
Lord we thank you that you see all of our life from a different perspective and you know us, you know the plans you had for us when you created us before the beginning of time. So Lord let your will be done and not mine.
You know far more than I, and you love me and know me more than I know myself.
Thank you for this promise that in you all things hold together. I will not fear. I will not give up my hope in your plan. Yes life is complicated but you are complex, you are able, you are creator and I trust you more than the things I can see.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
He holds all things together… that is a promise I like <3
