As of today, we have three weeks left here in Jacksonville. Time has flown by and I'm getting more and more excited about our adventure. My son-in-law asked me last night if I was nervous. My reply was, "No, just overwhelmed with what has to take place between now and April 25."
This morning as I was sitting at my desk, I looked up on my window (which faces east and the sun is so beautiful this morning), I saw a a couple of scriptures that I have written on Post-It Notes - one being: "So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own sufficient for each day in its own trouble" Matthew 6:34. This scripture reminds me not to worry, especially over things I have no control over - I have a hard time with that, a lot! How we're getting to Alaska is in God's hands, not ours and me worrying over it changes nothing, except more physical stress.
I keep several scriptures on that window so that I will read them each day. They are reminders of the Lord's goodness and love for me - that HE is in control of every aspect of my life. I know that God only wants good things for His children. I have to rest in that. Oh Lord, help me do that today.
Until next time...Pamela
