Do you ever become anxious because you don’t know what is happening or what will happen?  I sure do.  Deep down I understand that my faith carries me to accept that unknown, but my working brain says you need to know.  I have to understand as long as God knows, and my faith is there, all will be praises and thanks in the end.  Lately between my family and friend’s circumstances, I have yearned to know faster and more.  As the piece says today, we must enter our faith relationships by saying—You know—so I do not need to know.  This week try to relax and let your faith, whatever it might be, trust and accept through the joy of knowing there is an entity much more brilliant and efficient with time than us!


Thank You for knowing.

My praises rise to You, Almighty!

For you have lifted me through Your power, love, and glory.

Lifted me by hope in the next days.


I give You praises!

To You God above.

For You provide light in this darkened world.

You have taken me on my laid path with joy!


My heart reaches to pay alms toward You, Oh, Lord!

For Jesus came so that I may be with You,

Speak to You,

And lay my head in Your lap.


My smiles reach to You.

For I am confident of Your decisions in my life.

You have provided the Holy Spirit

To dwell in me and around me.


You make the times right,

The plans important,

And Your closed doors direct me,

To the fulfillment of Your kingdom.


Oh!  God!  I can never repay or give back

But You know my heart says thank You,

And I am Your servant!

I serve to display Your light.


Help me to bring Your Kingdom to this earth.

May I show and share love to others.

I may not know,

But thank You for knowing more than I!

I wish life and living was easy sometimes, but if it were that easy we would not appreciate our blessings and gifts.  If you will work on accepting not knowing this week, I will too!  Our living will be richer when we accept not knowing.  Happy Summer!  Stay cool and enjoy the sun this week!

    What would we do . . . where would we be . . . without our faith/love/trust in Him? You express it so beautifully . . . as alwlays.
