Today’s post on SheReadsTruth was absolutely perfect. It was just what I needed right about now. D and I had a great talk a few nights ago about being afraid/nervous of the future and about how we both believe that “everything will work out” and be okay in the end.
While in my heart I do believe that everything will work out and be okay, even when they seem overwhelming and sometimes down right horrible. I believe that God has a plan and that it will be okay in the end even if we cannot understand it in the moment or even during our lifetime. But in the day to day moments, I still struggle to trust God. My effort to let go and let God is definitely a work in progress.
Today’s readings were a great reminder that God will take care of tomorrow, I just need to let him! This doesn’t mean that I don’t need to make sure that I get stuff done, God is not going to wash my hair or buy groceries for me. But I can put my stress in his hands, and know that when it really matters he will take care of me. He is always there, I just need to remember that and turn to him always! not only when I feel upset.
