Several months ago, I came across this post, Depend on God Daily, by the Kansas director of The Navigators ministry, Richard Spann. I have returned to it several times and finally just printed the whole thing off tonight to keep in my journal for regular reflection. I’ve spent considerable time wrestling and praying this year about how to keep up with many responsibilities and tasks on a daily basis, so Mr. Spann’s recounting of what he learned from Lorne Sanny, former International Director of The Navigators, was very inspiring. I especially love this point at the end of the post:
“The Lord delights to meet our needs; however, the supreme matter to our lives is not that these issues be resolved. That is of lesser importance. The supreme matter is that in so doing, we may see the hand of the Lord; that we may come to know Him more deeply, love Him more completely, and worship Him more perfectly.”
The whole article is very encouraging and practical for anyone who is struggling to know how to handle the responsibilities and situations that are part of their daily life (and isn’t that all of us?!).
