I am trusting

“But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying ‘You are my God!’ My future is in your hands” (Psalm 31:14-15).

“Difficult situations will happen. Situations we may or may not have control over, but how we respond is always within our control.” [p.44 Chickening In]

I was recently invited to join a book launch team for the soon-to-be released book titled Chickening IN by JJ Gutierrez.

God has such a sense of humor!!!

By the way, I am enjoying the book. It is challenging me in good ways. I would much prefer a hard copy because that is me. I do enough with technology that I am looking for a break from it when I do other reading.

The book is about choosing to Chicken IN and face your fears instead of Chickening OUT. I love the title! I am several chapters in and I keep thinking about my own personal challenges but also about fear in general.

At the moment, most of the world is panicking over the coronavirus. Hand sanitizer and jugs of water are hard to find. There seems to be a lot of fear surrounding it — even more fear than the flu which has impacted many more people in the USA than the coronavirus so far.

I guess we will see how it unfolds.

I don’t want to be ill but if the coronavirus is my demise, I am not worried. I do not fear death — honestly, it’s the dying I worry a little about. I don’t particularly like pain. But death is a natural part of life. And I can not control every thing I come in contact with.

All I can do is wash my hands with soap and water and do what I can do to be healthy. If you are feeling fearful, remind yourself that God is in control. We are all dealing with any number of things that can cause fear. Knowing that God is always working out the details gives me immeasurable peace.

“But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying ‘You are my God!’ My future is in your hands” (Psalm 31:14-15).
