Lord, little by little You are getting through to my befuddled mind to teach me another practical concept about living a life pleasing to You.
Lord Jesus, I know You said that in this world we would have troubles, but for some reason I really thought there would be fewer problems as I aged. That I would become wiser. But life becomes more complicated.
I wonder, Lord, is it because You need to constantly remind us that this earth is not our home . . . that we are heaven bound?
So many times I forget that people, circumstances, or things cannot give me happiness; only You can. I realize now that discouragement can be a lack of trusting You.
This day, Lord, I pray that You will enable me to trust You each time a problem arises.
Whenever I get stressed, remind me to turn my eyes on You and Your sufficiency.
My help comes from You, Lord!
