Today I will trust God for everything.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

I will not attempt to understand why I’m not receiving an answer to my prayer. Today, I will seek instead to learn about effective prayer so that mine will be.

I may not be getting answers to these specific questions about retirement or a different job because God is tired of hearing about it. “Be grateful for the job you have” I hear echoing in my head. I am grateful, I just don’t like it anymore. Help me to understand. Can one be grateful and dissatisfied at the same time? I don’t know if that is even possible.

I don’t like my own answer to that one.

Today I will ask instead, why don’t I hear from you. Should I pray in a different way? Tell me what I am doing wrong? Maybe I’m just being stubborn or wanting a different answer because Wait and Trust are all I’m getting in response.

Trust? I trust you because You have proven trustworthy to me personally and in all that I read in Your word.

Wait? Wait for what? I feel like my life is passing me by while I do nothing important. But there I go again, thinking about me. And why does it have to be important anyway?

The older I get the more urgent these things become.

Today I will accept that what I do is important. Not what I do at work, but what I do at home. To care for others is important. It may not be what I planned or expected but, today, I’ll be grateful that they are here for me to do it.

Help me, Lord, to do it with a glad heart.

1 Chronicle 16:10 – Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad. 

March 2nd was National Caregivers Day. Find one and them a hug. It doesn’t matter what day it, they need one.
