I was thinking about grace today. His grace is sufficient for you...is an interesting statement. And more then that, thinking about the cares of the future. I think it's easy to give in to worry. What I feel like I need for the tomorrow or next year I don't have the grace for at this moment. Why? Because I don't need it yet. When I do need it grace for my situation will be there. Because grace is sufficient in the moment you need it and not a moment before. Does that make sense?
I'm thinking about my family and Matt's family today. There's so many things going on in our lives that we could worry about and most of it has to do with the future being unknown. BIG THINGS! Life changing things! How will it all work out? I want/need to know now. But, instead of being in control, I need to trust that everything is in the Lord's hands and when I need it His grace will be sufficient. AND that needs to be my prayer for my family in need of grace.
I guess I just needed to say this out loud. It helps me process.
If you're worrying about something...try praying for grace and trusting the Lord with the details you can't control anyway. That's what I'm doing...i didn't say it's easy but, easier then the alternative.
