In the Morning When I Rise, Give Me Jesus

Today, I am grateful that I woke up.
It's weird to think of something as seemingly mundane as rising out of bed as a blessing, but it is. I had absolutely no control over whether I woke up this morning. God controls my lungs, my breathing, my life.

Not being in control is something that is difficult for me to accept. I'm a planner by nature and like to know everything that is going to happen. My first question in the morning is often "What is for dinner?" I like to know. And not knowing how things are going to unfold leaves me feeling not only powerless, but super anxious.

It's great that God doesn't let us know our futures. If I knew everything that was going to happen to me in life, I would probably never want to leave my house. But I can trust His plans, even when they baffle me.

His ways are higher than my ways.
