If you are not present the mind which has incredible momentum will drag you away like a river. Eckhart Tolle
Vigilance means the mind can never be idle. When I am afraid, I am inclined to default to what I believe are my own resources. However, I am learning that trusting God is bigger than any contingency plan I might envision. Trust is no easy discipline, but one critical to our salvation. God prepared me to so this hard work, so I know it can be done. I just can't do it alone.
Trust in the Lord, I tell myself; He’s got it. And, when it makes no sense, Praise God anyhow. Praise confuses the enemy.
