Focus on God, but Keep Moving

The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand. 
Psalm 37:23–24
Oftentimes emotionally, we feel uncertain about what the future holds, especially when life gets complicated. Still, as the verse says above, we who delight in the Lord can rest assured that the Lord will take care of us with His mighty right hand! What a firm foundation we have!

So when your emotions get the best of you (as they do all of us), start praying and looking to the scriptures for His promises. 
Like:
People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord’s plan will happen.
Proverbs 19:21

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose….
Romans 8:28

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulties, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
Isaiah 43:2

For you see, the above verses tell us:
People can make plans against us, but God gets the final say.  
God has the ability to work all things together for good for those who delight in Him, and He is always with us showing the way.

As the song goes, Momma said there’d be days like this! But Jesus said it too….. that there would be difficulties this side of heaven. So when difficulties come, (and they will) take a deep breath, seek the one you delight in and keep moving for greater is He that is within you, then he that is in the world!
