"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." - Isaiah 26:3

Dear God, there is so much I do not understand about my life.  I have thrown all my theology at it, I have thrown all of my experience at it and nothing sticks.  Some things just can't be filtered through.  I am learning to trust you not because of great insights and emotional breakthroughs but just because you promise to make everything new. Today, I am going to take a vacation from trying to link my faith to my understanding of the meaning of my life apart from being redeemed.  It is enough to be your child and to have the promise of being with you in person, forever.  The rest can go out with the trash and it won't change my destiny.  My mind is stayed on you.  Please, free me from my lust for sorting out the details as if I have to know how each piece fits in order to be at peace. AMEN

"We don't trust God because he makes perfect sense to us.  We trust him because he is God and we are not."
