As I fretted...

As I fretted about not having time to prepare, a Scripture popped into my head: "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10). In an instant I realized what God was saying to me. I didn't feel prepared, but He was. Any good works that He had planned for me to do would most certainly be taken care of by Him. So I changed my course...Then I took a few minutes to pray. Lord, work in me, through Christ Jesus, the good things You have prepared for me to do, I requested silently. My "work" is to walk in faith, believing that You can do through me - or even in spite of me - anything that You desire, whether or not I feel prepared. - Lisa Whelchel
