I have been struggling these past few days to give it all over to God. I think I am doing well and the next thing I know my mind has wandered and is trying to predict every scenario of my future. In the Jesus Calling devotional it spoke about how I always picture my future as a “twisted complicated path with branches going off in all directions.” However, I need to picture it as “a path in which a peaceful fog has settled over it, obscuring my view so I can only see a few steps in front of me”. This is God’s protection, keeping me in the present moment, and keeping me focused on Him. I am asking for prayers that I would be able to keep my focus on God and His path for me and not the doctor’s diagnosis or information on the internet.
“My Lord and My God, my hope is in you. All the rest is too much for my limited and distressed mind, and it amounts to little account anyway. I look to no one and nothing but You, and I await your guidance.” (David Jeremiah, A Bend in the Road)
