Tomorrow my journey begins

"One day at time" they always say but it's hard when the issues of the next day press against you. Knowing I wasn't going to get much sleep I turned to my Bible for companionship. As I read I thought about the nurse from the cancer treatment center and her question to me. She asked me what I did when I got stressed or depressed and I told her I read my Bible. She then asked me What I get out of it. My list to her was, strength, guidance, comfort, reassurance, forgiveness, companionship, and the reminder that I am never alone. It helps me to back off from pushing into tomorrow as I'm told once more to not worry and let tomorrow take care of itself. So, tomorrow, you're on your own. Me and my thoughts are staying in today.

Ps 16:8,9 I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices. My flesh also will rest in hope." Instead of setting tomorrow in front of me I need to remind myself to always set the Lord before me. When I do that "tomorrow nor my cancer" stand a chance. Therefore I cannot be moved, my heart is glad, my glory rejoices, and better yet my flesh will rest in hope.

So at last its good night and sweet dreams. Rest in hope. My God is before me. He's the one in the lead. I need not fear for God is already waiting for me to arrive at the next stop life has in store for me. Standing there patiently awaiting my arrival with arms opened wide as He gently smiles and says, "Welcome, Karen, welcome."

Karen,
May your thoughts be on the One who will comfort and keep you.

I'll remember you in prayer, too.
