I struggle with anxiety and worry about the future, and this year has been a season of extreme uncertainty. I want to know the plan and I want the plan to stay the same. I want to feel like things in my life are stable and secure. Often times I’m looking to my circumstances and situation for feelings of stability and security, but right now (and always) those feelings are impossible to come by - except when looking to Jesus. I’m reminded of His promises and comforted knowing that His love and plans for me are certain. He doesn’t change.
My hope is in the Lord and, “the best is yet to come.” An easy verse to memorize and recite has been Psalm 56:3: “When I am afraid, I put my trust in YOU.” When I feel the weight of this world, I remember to trust God.
