Day 21- A New Hope

Yeah, yeah…another Star Wars reference…I know.  But this morning…I was needing it.  I prayed for renewed hope in this difficult health journey and the plans that God has for me.  The day seemed to get worse and worse.  So many questions and no answers in sight.  I am so confused.  And to be honest…I’m scared.

I desperately need clarity from the Lord.  I know that He won’t leave me here and when we ask for wisdom, He faithfully provides.  I know from His faithfulness in the past that He brings blessing when we give up what He asks of us…when we give up what we have been holding onto out of fear.  Fear is not from Him.  While I desperately seek the Lord for clarity, I know that He is not a God of confusion and He will lead me.  I will trust in the Lord with all my heart and I will not lean on my own understanding.  In all my ways I will acknowledge Him and He will make my path straight.  In Him I have new hope.  For this I am truly grateful.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for His Name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely Your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

Psalm 23
