What the Future Holds (FMF)

image: katemotaung.com
When I read a novel, I sometimes usually peek ahead.  I might not read the whole ending, but I'll look for the name of a particular character to find out whether a romance continued or someone survived a major illness.  I just want to know how it turns out.

And so it is with life.  I feel as though I can handle a difficult situation if I know what's going to happen or how it'll end.

I like to plan.  I plan not only appointments and meetings, but also housework, meal plans, and just about everything else.  I want to know what's going to happen.

Of course we can't always know what happens or how something with turn out.  Sometimes a surprise will require a change of plans, and I have to confess that I'm not a happy camper when that happens.  But we just have to walk by faith, a step at a time, and lean on God the whole way.  I may not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but He can.  He hasn't promised me an easy life, but He has promised to be with me always.  What more can I ask?

This has been one of my favorite songs lately (Aaron Shust, "The One"):
For the one who holds tomorrow
Holds me in His hand
And I will not fear the future
I'll trust the Great I Am
Who has been and always will be
Reigning on His throne
For the One who holds me in His hand
Is the One who holds it all
