Daily Digest #230

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. —Proverbs 3:6

I think everybody has been in a situation where he/she stepped forward, blindfolded, not knowing what lies ahead, only armed with faith. Two people getting into marriage with everything uncertain but the love they have for each other and the oath they have taken in the eyes of God. A single parent who faithfully keeps a job and a household, night and day, believing that all the sacrifice will be worth it. A foreigner trying to make a living in a faraway country, hopeful that he/she could get by, learn, meet new people, adapt to the culture, and be able to provide for his/her family back home. A passenger unconsciously trusting the driver with his/her life until he/she gets to his/her destination. A new graduate full of hope despite of the worldwide recession.

The future is truly uncertain. But like the hardworking farmer who patiently waits for the rain, we are assured that God's help and guidance will come, and the harvest will be plenty. With this, how can anyone be afraid? We are constantly reminded to lift our burdens and cares to God, and he will take care of the rest. All we need is a little faith. Without faith, we cannot hope. And hope is a very valuable thing, especially at times like this.

Let us pray. May we hope in the Lord and trust in His ways. May we do our part as faithful servants every day -- to love, to share God's story by the way we live, so others too may believe. May we remain prayerful, and never forget to count our blessings. May His will be done. Pray always.
