From “Thoughts on Life” by John Grant
Quotes you can use
Pastor Ken Whitten’s wisdom:
You can trust Jesus to take care of you. You can trust Him at all times, in all circumstances. When you are weary and everything seems to be going wrong, you can still utter these four words: “I trust You, Jesus.” By doing so, you release matters into His control, and you fall back into the security of His everlasting arms.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” - Lamentations 3:22-26 NIV
Stop trying to work things out before their times have come. Accept the limitations of living one day at a time. When something comes to your attention, ask Jesus whether or not it is part of today’s agenda. If it isn’t, release it into His care and go on about today’s duties. When you follow this practice, there will be a beautiful simplicity about your life: a time for everything, and everything in its time.

As we face the day -to -day challenges of life we are told to “trust God” with the uncertainties that worry us. Trust God with the blind corners and with that next step even when it feels there is nowhere to place your foot. It can sound so trite at times when our minds swim with the “what if” possibilities.
