ONLY ONE SANE CHOICE---by Lillian Duncan

Author Lillian Duncan
 Only One Sane Choice!
Joshua 1: 9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

As I was drifting off to sleep one night, God nudged me awake with the idea of this devotion. So up from the bed to my computer I went.

It’s been a rough year for me.  Last May I was diagnosed with bilateral brain tumors called schwannomas. They are benign but still require treatment, which will last for at least another year. Between the tumors and the treatment, I haven’t felt well for the past six months, have partial facial paralysis on both sides, hearing loss, and … and… The list of symptoms and side effects can go on and on, but I won’t.  I don’t like to complain.
The reality is my husband and I are still going through the crises and we don’t know what the future holds. Things are getting better, and God is working in our lives. But we still don’t know and won’t know the outcome of all my health “issues” for quite some time.
But guess what?
You don’t know what the future holds either.  You may think you do. You may have all sorts of activities, goals, plans and strategies in place for the next year or even five years.
The truth is none of us know what will happen in the next minute, hour, day, week, or ……well, you get the idea.
When faced with that truth, there really is only one sane choice.
TRUST GOD.
Trusting God is the only reasonable choice in an unreasonable world.
God will bring a supernatural peace and joy that confuses the world. We don’t have to understand everything. We don’t have to know the future. All we really need to know is that God loves us and will be with us wherever we go.
Trusting God really is the only sane choice!

My heart is with you, Lillian. We all have "stuff" to deal with. Praise Him that we have hope in the only guaranteed future available that gives hope. And that's a lifetime of lifetimes with the only One who matters.
