Early this morning, as I pondered about which aspect of spiritual growth to focus on today, I realized that praying about it would be a smart thing to do! During my prayer time, what came to me was the importance of trusting God at all times with all that we have, are and do.
Then I thought, “I would love some confirmation on this.” I picked up my “Jesus Calling,” and turned to the bookmarked page which read:
“Strive to trust me in more and more areas of your life.
Anything that tends to make you anxious is a growth opportunity.
Instead of running away from these challenges,
embrace them, eager to gain all the blessings I have hidden in the difficulties…”
(Jesus Calling by Sarah Young)
That was confirmation enough for me. And so today’s journal prompt is as follows:
PRAYER FOR THE DAY: God, it can be hard to put our troubles in your hands when we cannot see you standing in front of us or talk face-to-face over coffee! In this world, it takes a true leap of faith to trust when we cannot see and touch. So we ask your help. Please show up for us in ways that are undeniable. Forgive our doubt and help us to remember – day to day and minute by minute – that you truly hold us in the palm of your hands – warm, gentle, loving hands. Thank you for being a Power we can trust. Amen.
