Heavenly Father, we are constantly learning about what it means to
be reasonable people. We want to understand more of life, reason out the things
that seem somewhat over the top, and hand our thoughts over to You. Sometimes,
Lord, we spend so much time thinking and looking for reasonable answers that we
forget to simply trust that You have all things in Your hand and we don't really
have to bother about all the details. Help us to appreciate the fact that we
don't always have to know the "why" of something even when it doesn't seem
Father, our world today often seems scary and out of control. It
feels like we are caught up in national insanity and everything is flip-flopped
and overbaked and sour smelling, but we don't know what to do about it. We don't
know how to get it back to feeling reasonable again
We know that You have already gone ahead of us and that You know
all the outcomes and will walk with us as we go onward. We believe, Lord, that
the most reasonable thing we can do is follow You. Help us to embrace Your ways
and live with a heart of joy. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
Read Isaiah 1:18 .
