Today's devo warns us to not get "tangled up" in tomorrow's "worry-webs." (81)
Most likely we are all familiar with "worry-webs." But, did you know, brain imaging can capture "worry-webs." They are thorny-like structures that inhibit productive thought processing in the brain.
Ever noticed how difficult it is to concentrate on a task when you are distracted by a "worry-web" that has snagged and entangled your thoughts?
Trust is a great de-snagger allowing us to have an eternal focus; free from the thorny issues that entangle us. The Holy Spirit is our "resident Tutor, helping (us) in this supernatural endeavor."
Striving to be thorn-free, web-free...dmc


  1. Today's devotional begins and ends with the same sentence--"Trust Me one day at a time." On old hymn immediately comes to mind. The chorus is: "Trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey".

    Thank you, Jesus. I know I am safe in your care.

  2. Great hymn Amelia!

    Trust was the key issue for me to be able to totally give everything to God. The other was flexibility and being able to be spontaneous. This was difficult for me to learn, because to me being flexible meant not being in control and this was very uncomfortable for me. God always has a way of changing my plans and when he would do this I would get stressed. But now that I have learned to trust God, I know he has my best interests at heart and I know his changes to my plan will serve me best. Jeremiah 29:11 tells me this. I also know that any surprises along the way are something to let God handle. Romans 8:28 tells me this. Now I find myself wondering, “What’s there to worry about? God has it all under control.” However I do still find myself struggling with worry sometimes and that is when I do what Dawn Marie commented about on Wednesday, “I roll it over into a prayer.” This way I can focus on today and let God take care of tomorrow.

  3. Sounds like you have had many of the same struggles that I have had, Melissa. Years ago when our daughter went on her first overseas missions trip, I was really struggling with letting go of my precious young daughter. God allowed circumstances that helped me realize that the safest place in the world is in God's will. God has always been there to guide and keep in many different circumstances. And He has given me peace in that area of my life!

    I'm still a work in progress. Have a great day.

  4. It is so easy to get distracted with worrisome issues. Thanks, Amelia & Melissa! You put into words the familiar struggles we so often feel & what our hearts so often long for...the benefits that come with trusting God completely!
