I started a new devotional in my quiet time today called Come Away, My Beloved by Frances J. Roberts. Here’s what I read:
One Day at a Time
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34
O My child, have you not known the way of the Lord and can you not trust Him now? Nothing shall befall you but that which comes from His hand. No one shall set upon you to hurt you for your God has built around you a wall of fire.
Be content with what each day brings, rejoicing in your God, for surely He shall deliver you. He is the One who has brought you here.
His way is discernable to the eye of faith. His heart is surely your strong tower. In His affection you have security. In His love are your hope and your peace.
Do not question and do not doubt. Each day holds some small joy that shall escape you if you are preoccupied with tomorrow.
Nothing daunts your Father. Nothing can restore the past and nothing can bind the future, but today you may live in the full blessing of the Father’s smile. Hold to His words for they are like a nail driven into solid wood. All else may seem shifting and transitory, but His Word is firm. It is a rock that shall not be moved. It is a firm place to stand.
Do not walk in the path of human reason, and resist the pressure that would project you into conjectures about the future. Live one day at a time! Simply striving to bring joy to your Father’s heart is enough to keep you occupied. For you know that He loves you and you will find your peace as you rest in Him.
I really need to be reminded of this today. As our homeschooling is headed more toward a lifestyle of learning and I implement more Charlotte Mason ideas, I am definitely not walking in the path of human reason (or the world’s reason I should say). I needed to be reminded that I’m following His lead and He knows what’s best for our family. I can rest in Him!!
