This morning while studying and praying about the day, my first thought was about a meeting I have in an hour. I am the treasurer of an organization and it is time for the annual report and audit. Of course, there is nothing to fear, but dread creeps into my thinking. I suddenly realize that the only time there seems to be a struggle in my life is when human will, pride and ego are at the forefront. As I humbly release this fear to God, at the same time the dread is released and I know I can enjoy this meeting rather than just focus on it being over!
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8 This is not something I have to do on my own, but put my trust in Him.
