What makes the difference for me, is taking chances. Changing the way I do things or think about things. Growing, learning something new every day, is also important and not hard to do at all.
No matter how "in control" we think we are, it's an illusion. We never know what the next moment with bring. So this morning, I am turning my life and my will over to the care of God. I don't know what's around the bend, but He does.
Faith and trust are synonyms. My faith is built on a trust in God. Even though I don't know what His plan is, I do know He has my best at heart. At this point in my life, I've seen enough to know, it's the hardest situations that reap the greatest rewards.
Wait and see what the Lord has in store for you. Look and listen. Those words you don't want to hear, that task you hate to do, that situation you see as terrible, those are the things that have the potential to really bless you.
Psalm 348 "O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!" Fantasizing the freedom to trust God and enjoy the day.
