shrouded in uncertainty

road going to the sun

Rest with Me a while. You have journeyed up a steep, rugged path in recent days. The way ahead is shrouded in uncertainty. Look neither behind you nor before you. Instead, focus your attention on Me, your constant Companion. Trust that I will equip you fully for whatever awaits you on your journey.

I designed time to be a protection for you. You couldn’t bear to see all your life at once. Though I am unlimited by time, it is in the present moment that I meet you. Refresh yourself in My company, breathing deep draughts of My Presence. The highest level of trust is to enjoy Me moment by moment. I am with you, watching over you wherever you go.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
—Psalm 143:8

“I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
—Genesis 28:15

This little devotional book app on the iPad has become a daily habit.  Every day there is something written that speaks to me right where I am.  It’s as if He cups His hands on my face, looks me straight in the eyes and tenderly speaks these words over me.  

Looking all around me, iI see uncertainty.

I’m reminded of a “scenic” drive we took a few summers back while visiting Glacier National Park.  We were on the road called “going to the sun,” one of Montana’s amazing attractions and is rightly described as ” scary ride, dizzying heights, narrow road, but gorgeous!”  Not being the biggest fan of heights, especially on narrow roads often without guard rails, I found myself distracted by fear and truly missing out on some beautiful moments because I was too concerned about the uncertainty around me.

While reading today’s devotional I thought how many times do I respond in my spiritual life, that day-by-day [moment by moment] journey just like I did on Going to the Sun Road?   So many uncertainties come to mind, not just personal ones,  but the numerous uncertain situations family members and friends are walking through. We all have struggles of varying degrees.
to some the future seems to hold little or no hope.  But it’s in the Present where He meets us. He does not leave us, it’s us who stray from Him.

Our Trust is in this very moment and our Hope is in His Future Glory.

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
