February 11, 2006...Alot is happening in our lives right now. So many possibilities and so many choices. I have a tendency to worry. God gave me this awesome ability to be a planner...I love to be prepared for anything and everything! I love surprises, but I usually spoil them because of a fear of being caught off guard. At times this fear and worry can stand in the way of letting God flow spontaneously through me. But when I worry about how things are gonna go or what's gonna happen, I'm constantly reminded and brought back to God's Words to Jeremiah, "Do not say, 'I am a youth', for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces. For I am with you to deliver you...Behold, I have put my words in your mouth." (Jeremiah 1:4-9). What love to abide on! I don't have to worry...He's got it under control! I don't even have to worry about what I'm gonna say...as long as I know that I'm abiding in God's will, I can rest assured that He will speak (and sing!) through me.
...You understand my thoughts afar off...
You are aware of all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue,
You know all about it, Lord. You have encircled me;
