hold my hand.

Here I am entering Senior year. It feels sort of surreal as if these past 3 years have been a complete blur, where did the time go? It's weird entering your final year of anything because it always leaves you with that big question, what next? It's weird. scary. the whole uncertain thing isn't something I'm completely fond of. BUT, the complete blank slate leaves HUGE room for the Lord to move & guide.

The other morning I was thinking about everything and I read this from Jesus Calling:

"Hold my hand, and walk joyously with me through this day. TOGETHER we will savor the pleasures and endure the difficulties it brings. Be on the lookout for everything I have prepared for you: stunning scenery, bracing winds of adventure, cozy nooks for resting when you are weary, and much more. I am your Guide, as well as your constant Companion. I know every step of the journey ahead of you, all the way to heaven.

You don't have to choose between staying close to Me and staying on course. Since I am the way, staying close to Me is on course. As you focus your thoughts on Me, I will guide you carefully along today's journey. Don't worry about what is around the next bend. Just concentrate on enjoying My Presence and staying in step with Me."

wow. thank you Lord for making sure I focus on the now in your Presence. We are not made to maintain the ideas of the future, only He is. And for that I am thankful and at peace with. Praising Him in the "I don't know" because He does.

"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." {Matthew 6:33}
