I’ve started my post four times this morning and have four different stories going. Some days are harder than others to get things together. I’ve prayed, studied, drank my coffee and I’m still finding it hard to come up with a devotional. My mind seems to wander off, thinking about what I’m going to wear to church, how long do I have before I start getting dressed, and how much I really don’t want to engage in activities away from home today. I know that God will sometimes send me through a trial just to give me a lesson to share. I believe today is one of those days. I need to relax and let Him take me on this journey, not worry about what comes next; it’s not my plan anyway. Here’s what I got: get up, wash your face, put on some clothes, and don’t worry so much about what others think of you. Go to church and worship God in spirit and in truth. Make today all about Jesus, set your face toward Him and Him alone.
But the Lord GOD helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame. Isaiah 50:7
