Quote of the Day

“When we’re looking to the future, we’re not listening to Father. Anything we do to try and guarantee stability on our own terms will actually rob us of the freedom to simply follow him today. We’ll resort to our own wisdom instead of following his. The greatest freedom God can give you is to trust his ability to take care of you each day.” (Jacobsen and Coleman, "So You Don't Want To Go Church Anymore." Buy the book at:

    What about meditating on future possibilities as you discuss them in prayer with the Father? While I trust his providence, I have found that passivity does not seem to bring me an awareness of what the Father is doing. Since I must go forward in time, I pick a direction after prayer and then keep looking to him to confirm that I am on the path, meditating on the ways he has worked with and through me in the past.
