Which is Chinese Redneck for I have no idea.
But I know the answer now, and it's simple.
You find faith in the next moment. Look too far, and you're messed up.
It's like walking a rocky trail. Look down for the next step, and you're fine. Watch the horizon, and you're in twisted-ankle-land.
You don't need faith for the journey. You need faith for the right now.
I don't know what I will face tomorrow, but I can hold my faith to my heart by appreciating God's blessings in the moment.
Blessings like the friendly, gentle contractor who's finishing off some tornado-repair damage to the house. He's replacing some drywall today, and the dogs love him.
Blessings like a good movie, The Last Jedi, which takes me to a different place, and may the Force be with you!
Sometimes you have to dig. It could be worse. I could be slow, soft, and ugly.
Yeah, humour helps.
But the point is that, like the lilies of the field or the wandering and muttering Israelites, I don't have to worry about tomorrow.
God will provide.
Grace is manna, and there will be more tomorrow.
Just for fun of it, here are The Searchers with Love Potion #9. Enjoy!
Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.
Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.
