There is a time for everything under the sun... And now it is time for me to begin a new chapter in my life. The old chapters are done; however, it it exciting to anticipate what new things the remaining chapters may bring. The most important thing to remember is that God is the author of my life's story. He has those future chapters already written! I don't need to worry about what the future holds, but I do need to participate, and not just spectate, as my life goes by. So what can I do to be ready for whatever the future may hold? Be strong, spiritually. Read, pray, meditate, worship. Love and adore and commune with my Abba-Father. Trust in Him completely. Be strong, physically. Stop letting my body die. I have been a terrible steward with the life, health, and time that God has given me. (Also with the money, children, family, just about everything else He has blessed me with). But those chapters are over, and moving into the newest chapter, it is time to begin to be a faithful steward. Be strong, emotionally. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, and playing the poor victim. Other people have been through worse!! Don't lay down and play dead anymore. God does actually have a plan for me! It may include finding someone to love and be loved by, or it may not. But God will supply all of my needs in Christ. He should be the fulfillment of all my desires. My trust rightfully belongs in Him, not in anybody or anything else. So as long as I am in Him, and continually trying to please Him by being a good steward, what do I have to fear? Instead, I have everything to be content.
