Morning Praise — God Expects the Unexpected

This moment is all I know. The future is uncertain. I make plans for the day as if I know they will come to fruition, yet the unexpected awaits to thwart my plans. In the emergency room this week I lay on the bed thinking how this wasn’t in my plans for the day. It wasn’t serious, but it could’ve been if I had waited. It reminded me that God is in control, not me.

This morning I give praise dear God that you gently remind us to trust you. I praise you for your love and grace, for your hand upon us. Increase our faith in you and our awareness of the path you lay before us. With each step of faith may we give you praise that you continue to pursue us. Thank you Father God that you consider us worthy to be called your children.

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Matt. 6:31-34.

  1. So sorry you were felling bad. Hope all is better now. Trusting Him to care for us is important and hard at the same time. Its a constant reminder to let go and let God.

  2. I hope you are well now. I remember having similar thoughts once when my daughter and I were diagnosed with strept throat despite having gone in to be checked for something else. I’d brought her in because of a pain and they tested her for it so I asked if they’d test me as well. Both of us were positive and we had no symptoms known to us! But all along it was there growing.

    It was a reminder to me of how much He cares for us that when something is wrong He will highlight whatever it takes to get our attention.

  3. Fabulous post. We are smiling because just recently we made a trip to the ER. It was not expected but we realized God is in control and with all things… God is sovereignly in control with something to be learned. We did learn, a lot..
