This morning I hear from a wise older woman, Ceil, who has learned how to trust God through difficult circumstances. After many years of walking with Jesus, she writes this:
“I find that now I feel less of a need to try to control circumstances, and I have more of a sense of anticipation to trust God and wait to see what He will do. This is a very freeing way to live!”
I try to picture myself as the kind of woman who doesn’t need to control everything and who doesn’t collapse under the weight of a hard situation. Instead, I want to cultivate a life that anticipates, that trusts, and that knows God will work. Then, I’m just waiting and watching with joy to see how it will all turn out under God’s loving care.
