I don’t know about tomorrow. Sometimes I wish that I did.
I don’t know whether or not the sun will shine, or it will rain again.
I don’t know if times will get easier or if we’ll lose all we’ve got left.
I don’t know if anything will change, or if everything will. Sometimes I wish that I knew.
But I don’t know even a tiny detail about the future.
What I do know is that I serve a God who is more than faithful.
I know that He is able.
I know that He is good.
I know that He does not forget.
I know that His way is best.
I know that He stands behind His promises.
I know that He is Jehovah Jireh– the God who has a thousand ways to provide for us of which we can’t even imagine.
I know that whatever happens today, whatever happens tomorrow, He will take care of us.
Most of all I know that He knows.
He knows our needs before we ask.
He knows the desire of our hearts.
He knows what we can take.
He knows the little things that mean so much to us.
He knows what is best, more than anything.
He knows about tomorrow and He holds it, and each day of our future- in His hands.
Troubles come like rainstorms sometimes. They come in torrents and soak everything. They leave a chill that lingers after the rain is gone. But the same water that drenches the land, waters the seeds so that life may go on. So that when the sun shines, new life will spring up. Flowers will bloom and birds will sing again. And every little droplet becomes a diamond of hope in the sun.
“Worry is blind. It cannot see the future.“
But He can. God already know exactly how it’s going to turn out. And out of our circumstances, out of our failures, out of our troubles, He sees how beautiful He is going to make it in the end.
And so I trust Him. With yesterday’s brokenness, today’s fears, and tomorrow’s unknowns. With the sorrows and with the joys. With life’s unpredictable twists and turns and with the uncertainty that it brings.
I trust Him with my heart. My life. My family. My home. My abilities. My everything.
And He gives, and gives and gives. Wisdom for this moment. Strength for today. Bright hope for tomorrow.
I know this. I’ve tasted it. Experienced it. Lived it. And I know it is true. And that is all that really matters.
