My eyes open to the first morning light.
My mind fills with many thoughts, yet the chaos within is a driving force,
Pulling me to give up before I even start..
A new day, filled with obstacles, detours, roadblocks.
A new week, with new beginnings, old worries, empty wishes.
If only I could cast off the worries of yesterday – the reminders of past mistakes –
The desires for the future and the wandering into unknown territory.
Looking at things beyond my control is not an easy task.
Only God can see the future and what’s in store for me.
With that assurance I can look forward rather than back,
Because I know He is in control.
