A Prayer For Today…

When I Just Do Not Know

“Lord, I do ask, quite simply, that should I struggle with anything that I do not know today — whether that be the reason for a sickness, or something that happens to a person I love, or even just not having enough of the wisdom that I would love to possess — in your grace, help me to trust and move on.  And when I say ‘move on,” I mean move on toward you in all things.  In Jesus’ Name Amen!”  

When I Just Do Not Know — An Inspirational Quote


Knowing that we just don’t know it all 
and deciding to trust the One 
Who does know it all 
through the process

When I Just Do Not Know – Reflections 

At times — and I feel many times, really — we just do not know what we would like to know.  

We don’t know the “whys” of complicated issues.
We don’t understand the seasons of life we may be in. 
We don’t know how to help the ones we would love to help.
We don’t know why our prayers remain unanswered at the moment. 

We just don’t know…
And that’s when we turn to the Lord in trust.  

During those times, we turn in His direction because of that which we do know:  we know of His love for us. 

And  of His power.
And of His commitment to us as individuals.   

A Prayer For The Day…

 Reflecting On Scripture

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.(Psalm 40:2-4)**

Following about a three year search for God, Lee trusted Christ as Savior in 1967 as young Marine. He has served as an outreach pastor and a church planter. The Lord also led him to serve as the Director of Internships at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA where he served for over 20 years. Lee loves to write, has a strong desire to be a positive influence for Christ in our world, and is passionate about family. And speaking of family, he and his wife Sherry (who served as a Director of Elementary Education for many years and recently retired) praise the Lord for being married 44 years, their 3 daughters and son-laws, and 7 grandchildren! Lee and Sherry would say: "We've been abundantly blessed."
