Committing Things

I've had a couple of opportunities recently in little matters (which seem huge at the time) to commit things into our Lord's hands and trust for the result. These were situations in which I had done all that could be done with no apparent result or resolution, and now was the time to rest in the hope that all was going to turn out for the best. Trouble was a sense of uneasiness lingered in my soul ("lurked" is an even better word!) because my world was not all in its usual order, my ducks were not all in a row. Though only one duck was known by me to be out of formation somewhere it was enough of a challenge to make it harder to focus on the business at hand and to do it justice. These have been helpful excercises for me because both situations were eventually resolved and complete order restored but I had to be able to function fully in the meantime as though in a way it didn't matter. It didn't matter in the sense that it was going to be re-solved one way or the other even if the particular way was not my preferred way, still it would be re-solved and order would be restored. Knowing that was holding on to some sense of order in advance. Practicing this in the committing of little things can help prepare us for the time when we may have to practice committing bigger things into God's loving hands. The order is always there, even when we aren't directly experiencing it

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
