Day 21 For all attending to rest in God’s timing for them
Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it.
Father, many of us can easily become overwhelmed when we feel the need to take control of the circumstances and order our own steps. The pressure to make a good impression and leave those we meet wanting more can leave us exhausted, whether it be an editor or agent asking for a proposal, a fellow author we admire, or another attendee interested in friendship.
If we don’t take the time to seek Your will and Your guidance, we’re going to run out of strength and present less than our best. Please help each one of the attendees at this year’s conference to focus on You first, to ask for Your strength, and to trust that You have our steps ordered. The outcome might not be what we think it should be, but help us to remember that Your timing is perfect. As long as we trust in You, the desires of our heart will be attained.
Thank You for walking with us and bearing our load so that we can have peace.
