It seems odd that when this gets posted I will be sitting in some waiting room prepping for surgery. It is the loss of control that really gets to me. The “Now” is placed in someone else’s hands. Where is Dr. McKoy from Star Trek, who can wave his little shinny spiny thing over me and things get fixed. It’s not that easy, is it? God has us put our lives into the hands of a physician and we trust that wisdom and talent and the passion for work will guide him or her. So that is what I will do. The now of life requires a great deal of trust.
Life feels like a story so often. When we step into the story we decide if it will be interesting or not. Will we risk anything, live boldly, or try to avoid danger. Be bold with your day – write your story and make it interesting not antiseptic and sterile. Trust those words of Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
