In all your ways!

     I'm not a person who wakes up in the morning shouting "Bring it on!" I like to ease into the day with coffee and news of the weather. (This because I walk early) I appreciate way, thus change is not a word I embrace. However, a mature person knows that change is inevitable, so a mature person should be prepared for it. Right? Come on, do you know anyone who really loves change. 
What if we changed the word to "alterations." I know when I've altered ill fitting clothing, it looks better and I'm more comfortable.  But then, I've been in control of those alterations. Bottom line for me is this: I don't like to lose control. Familiar routine is, well, familiar. Change brings the unknown and with the unknown comes risk and who knows what else.
"Trust the Lord in all your ways, (Sharon) and lean not on your own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Prov. 3:5-6
As I've learned to trust the Lord with all my ways and not let my own understandings interfere with His directions, I  have peace...true peace...peace that passes all understanding. 
Even though I don't like change, I do trust that God works out all things for my good. I trust HIM, not my circumstances. I'm trying to live one day at a time, and after all, every day brings about a new change. 
Thank you Lord that you know me better than I know myself. Thank you for the grace to face another day in Your hands.
