Advent of Trust #3
"Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you." Psalm 37:5
Everything I do.
Committed to God.
It is so hard to keep that in mind as I go through out the day.
There are so many things to do, things I want to do. Just the general stuff of living, on one of my few days off, can get to be a pile too high, a list too long.
Yet the Psalm says to trust in Him and he will help me.
I have trusted in Him, and He has helped me in the past.
He will now and in the future too.
He is my strength and my joy. In Him I can trust.
My writing feels unfocused today. That's probably because my mind is as well.
I don't know yet what I am going to be doing this weekend. It could be anything from staying home with my family, to spending the whole weekend with Cindy being there for her if her husband has to leave town.
So, I have to trust God work out the details.
I want this time of preparation for Christmas to be about God, not about me, or what I am going to be doing. I don't want to get so caught up in "jobs" I need to do, or presents to buy, or concerns for my friends that I lose the point of this whole time.
Preparing my heart for Christ, to trust Him more fully, to love Him more deeply, to remember how He came into this world...
I have to trust everything else to God.
Commit all my ways to Him.
When I trust in Him, He helps me.
Thank you Jesus for helping me when I don't even remember to seek you for help. Thank you for reminding me to commit myself to you, to commit all my ways to you. You help me. You love me. You have my best in mind. So, I will trust in you. You have good plans for me.
Do your will in me Lord. I choose to trust you. You have been and You are my very present help in time of need. Amen.
