A Prayer When Life Takes a Detour, But You Still Choose Faith - Nan Jones
Lord, I am so thankful for Your sovereignty -- Your authority over all things concerning me, detours and all. You know my coming ins and my going outs. You know my thoughts from afar off. You lead me in the paths I should go. You do all things well. These things I know, Lord, but sometimes I need to be reminded of these truths every moment of every day. Sometimes I take my eyes off You, I let my thoughts wander into the netherlands, and despair tries to consume me -- confusion, fear and doubt call to me from the darkness and I answer to them, instead of keeping my heart stayed on You.
