“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV
How many times am I burden with uncontrollable anticipation about the future?
Dwelling on all sort of possibilities may indeed result in angst!
Anxious thoughts distract us from what’s relevant for the day; deadlines to fulfill, work tasks to complete, telephone calls to make, sick child to attend to, medical appointment to schedule, financial obligations to consider, an emergency to handle in a timely fashion and so much more.
Why be distracted with the ‘unknown’? Some events may never occur in a lifetime…
Every time I spend too much time exploring various scenarios, my energy is drained and mental efforts are taxed.
Will I have the clarity to manage my day effectively under distress? Probable not!
His Word refreshes my soul every morning, His angels protect me everywhere I go, and His compassion never runs out.
Every morning, I thank Him for my last breaths. He comforts me every time I’m in distress.
Thank You Jesus for being my comforter every morning! Your mercies are new every morning.
There is no need to ruminate on the past much less on the ‘unknown’.
