August 19, 2021 - Trust Him

With each next step or choice, living in the moment is all we have. What we will think about, what we will focus on, who we invite in, and how we deal with each moment is all we have control over. Personal revelation becomes so vital because it accounts for the elements we cannot see when the needs are immediate. It is individual, vulnerable, and guiding—and, most important, it is all motivated by love.

Lisa Valentine Clark, "'Yes, and . . .' : The Creative Art of Living", BYU Speeches, July 20, 2021

There are so many things in this world that we have no control over. What another person does or says, for one thing. Yet, we worry about those least I tend to. It's hard not to worry when those exact things that we don't have control over affect us and our personal space.

Politics is a huge example. All we can do is vote, but the outcome is out of our control. Yet, we worry about our leadership, or so called leadership in most cases.

Natural disasters is another example. We have no input on how hard the wind should blow, or how much the rain should fall, or if lightening should hit a tree and start a forest fire. We cannot control that, yet it affects our lives, so we worry about things like that.

Illness and disease is yet another example. I could list many. Point is, personal revelation will help us in all of these situations. God has control over EVERYTHING and He can guide us through all of it. He wants to guide us through it all.

We just need to trust Him. We need to ask Him to lead us through. He will.

Control those things we can control and learn to trust God for all the rest. It's as simple, and as complicated, as that.
