I am not strong. I am feeling weak, vulnerable and confused. This world promises so much yet the pathways are not so easy to find. I feel disillusioned with the world today and the choices ahead are life changing and huge. I need peace, wisdom and clarity. In my quiet time today, the tears rolled down my cheeks, they just flowed. I feel trapped and uncertain about what the future holds. I seek direction and only come up with more questions. I want answers. I want to know the right decision to make. I need certainty.
As I walked this morning, I came across this dandelion sitting on the side of the road in a gully. The morning sun perfectly lit this single stem. After returning home, I grabbed a coffee and sat for my quiet time in the corner of my bedroom. In my daily devotional were these words. "Whatever the challenge, the task, the trail or the crisis, God will provide for you, my dear sister in Christ. " Phillippians 4:19
Comforting words that God will provide all that I need, just as this single dandelion needs light, he can shine in exactly the right place at exactly the right moment. He provides the rays of sunshine when the world seems dark. I have to trust, I have to believe, I have to have faith that God has this one covered. I need to relinquish control and hand the reigns over to the only one who knows what the future holds and the only one who knows exactly what I need.
