One of those humorous little bits of truth says that “progress is man’s attempt to complicate simplicity.” Our lives do become complicated, and with the complications worries mount. “What about this? What if that happens? Will I get this done on time?” There is no easy answer to our complications, but our Lord does want to help us ease our burdens. Is. 30:15 says, “in quietness and trust is your strength.” Unfortunately, to the people to whom Isaiah wrote, he immediately followed this by saying, “but you would have none of it.” Let that not be our response. Our Lord continually invites us to quiet our soul by trusting completely in Him. Let’s not borrow trouble ahead, or add more complications to life. Do what is needed for today, and leave the rest in the Lord’s hands.
