Psalm 31:14-15 But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands.
What are we eating for dinner? When are we going swimming? Clara (5) peppers me with questions from the moment she opens her eyes. She want the who, what, where and when of every day.
Sometimes I patiently answer her questions. Other days I don't. I want her to discover the joy of not knowing what's around every curve.
I love to wander down a road I've never been on. It's an adventure as you pass homes and businesses you never knew existed. The kids will ask me where I'm going and I proudly answer, "I have no idea."
Today's passage is Psalm 31. As David praises God, I thank Him for guiding me down His paths. This psalm is home to the words Jesus murmured from the cross, "into your hands I commit my spirit". In Jesus' greatest pain, He trusted God.
In my adventure of faith, I want to trust God. There is great delight in not knowing what's around every bend. He takes me down new roads.
Like Clara, I want to toss questions. Where are you taking me God? Why are we going there? What will we do when we get there. He doesn't answer every question. He is a loving parent that understands the greater joy in not knowing.
Jesus, into your hands I commit my spirit. I trust You to lead my heart and plan my steps. My life is a highway and I'm gonna ride it with You...all day long.
