A Declaration of a Saint

I found this in my journal, written on November 9th, 2011.  I don't know who this woman is, but I want to be like her.

I will arm myself with the lessons learned from the past.
but I will not dwell there.

I will not look up the steep mountainside of the future,
for it is too daunting to search the unknown.

I will trust in Him who created all that is me,
all that is around me.

I will live with what God places in my hands: the present.

He has redeemed the past and plan the future;
His purchase is permanent,
and plans never changing.

Whatever is to come,
I will not "brace for impact."
I will live for Him in the now,
doing what I can to serve and love.

I will trust Him with what He has taught me.
I will trust Him with what He's given me.
I will trust Him with what He has told me.
I will trust Him with the uncertain and unrevealed.

"Whom have I in heaven but you? 
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides you." --Psalm 73:25
