In my life right now I feel like I am embarking on a new chapter of my life. I’ve graduating this year and soon I’ll be off to college. It’s scary. It frightens me and I often worry what the future holds...what will happen in this next chapter in my life? What joys will I experience and what sorrows will I endure? But when I do this. When I worry and fret what the next chapter holds I get in the way of the One who is supposed to be writing my story for me. So often we try to control the pen. We try to direct our own lives. But may I just say that the moment we try to take control- the moment that we try to write our own lives out is the moment we destroy them. Our life - our future- all depends on who is directing it. What is your life writing out today? Each one of our lives affects someone else's. We are all sharing a message to the world. What message are you carrying? What story are you telling? There is a song that I have on my phone that I love the words to it. It goes, “If my life's an open book, for everyone to read,each page another day, to show along the way,all You've done for me;Fill each chapter with Your love,and guide me from up above;If my life's an open book, Lord when they take a look,I hope it's you they see.”
Psalm 100:3 - Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
