This morning on my way to Church, it began to rain and I was on a seven-mile stretch of a narrow, windy, hilly road. As I looked in the distance, I saw a large truck with a ladder extended from it in the middle of the road. As I continued my drive, I began to be concerned because I didn’t see anyway to get around it. Attempting to figure it out in my head as I drove on, but before I knew it I was driving past this large truck because it was probably 100 feet from the road out in a pasture. It had only looked like it was on the road.
Then I quickly thought of fear problems of the future and knew when we turned to God, they are not even challenges. The “what ifs” we entertain just simply take away our joy and are imagined. Deuteronomy 31:6 states “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Praise God and stay in the present!
