Trust the Future to God

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Well, it looks like the same old weather we have had for a couple weeks now! Just perfect!  We really could use some rain, though, to dampen the pollen. The leaves are falling like rain, now, because the new little green ones are pushing them off! I have to take the broom to my porch this morning, because it is pretty well filled. When I get those off, more will be there before the day is over.

The leaves are really falling in the Park! The road was covered and so was everything else when I went there yesterday. I didn't see the gator, but a couple of turtles were sunning on the bank of the weir. I also saw lots of birds and ducks around Lynch lake when I passed it. I also noticed benches have been place all around the lake. That is a nice touch from the city. Since it needs mowing, it will be interesting to see how they maneuver around the benches. But God is still Good!

I say this because I know what I am planning for you,"says the Lord. "I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future." Jeremiah 29:11

How can you get to know God if you're unwilling to trust Him? The answer, of course, is that you can't. That's why you should trust God in everything (and that means entrusting your future to God).

Do you trust in the ultimate goodness of God's plan for your life? Will you face tomorrow's challenges with optimism and hope? You should. After all, God created you for a very important reason: His reason. And you still have important work to do: His work.

Today, as you live in the present and look to the future, remember that God has an amazing plan for you. Act--and believe--accordingly.

Take courage. We walk in the wilderness today and in the Promised Land tomorrow/

                   -Today's Prayer-
Lord, sometimes when I think about the future, I worry. Today, I will do a better job of trusting You. If I become discouraged, I will turn to You. If I am afraid, I will seek strength in You. You are my Father, and I will place my hope, my trust, and my faith in You. Amen
From the little devotional book Knowing God.)

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
