Confident, Cheerful, and Content!

Resting in the sovereignty of God, brings a peace and calm that helps us to remain stable and sure.

I believe that this is a truth worthy of holding onto for the rest of our lives! I'm not sure about you, but I have moments when I wonder why a certain area of my life can't be different. When I was younger I spent so much time worrying. But I've found that these wonderments and worryings quickly pass and fade away when I realize that every single thing that has and will happen to me was planned by our all wise and knowing Creator. This is the key to a restful heart and a confident, cheerful, and content young woman!

This reminds me of Proverbs 31:25, "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come."  

Yes! We can indeed laugh and rejoice at the future! Because the Lord is sovereign, we can be confident through storm or sunshine, trials or triumphs. This is a confidence that lasts. Confidence in ourselves is such a shaky ground to build on, and it's sure to fail and bring us to sadness, as I've experienced!

Let's rest in our Savior's arms, and smile joyfully at the future, because He is in control! 

"In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge."Proverbs 14:26
