No one wants to go to bed thinking something wonderful is going to happen only to wake up to disappointment, discouragement or a severe change of plans. While the adjustment can be hard, the Lord ultimately has good plans for you.
Oh beloved, is your mind reeling this morning? Are the circumstances you are waking up to beyond your control? Maybe your heart is broken or your feelings are hurt. You had a plan. You felt good. Things were looking up. You’d like to refuse to move on. Never fear! Though your outward circumstances can change in an instant, your inward state of mind can remain steadfast, peaceful and calm. Rejoice as you run to His Word and see that all He asks is for you to follow Him. That is where True Rest is found! He loves you and He has promised to be with you all the days of your life.
