Wrestling with the concept of trusting God to know the best path for us, to direct our destiny -- especially in the midst of uncertain and fearful times -- can cause us to take one of two approaches. We can either take the fear approach and work feverishly to control our own destiny, or we can take the faith approach and courageously surrender. Fear doesn’t always look like worry and doubt. Sometimes it looks like anger and bitterness. Faith doesn’t always look like peace and success. Sometimes it looks like exhaustion and conflict and defeat. And sometimes the only way to tell whether we have taken the path of fear or faith is by how well we handle the next test. By enduring what’s past with faith, we learn to apply faith to what’s next. Every small faith step leads to a bigger step of faith.
Whatever is next, whatever life, school, work, finances, love, looks like after this past Spring, after this Summer, after 2020…grab hold of God’s Hand in faith and trust His path. With His help, and because of His great love, we overcome.
With Great Expectation,
