"walk in the plain, simple way"

Why is it that we are so busy with the future? ...Is there not a criminal interference with him to whom it belongs, in our feverish, anxious attempts to dispose of it, and in filling it up with shadows of good and evil shaped by our own wild imaginations? To do God’s will as fast as it is made known to us, to inquire hourly –- I had almost said each moment –- what he requires of us, and to leave ourselves, our friends, and every interest at his control, with a cheerful trust that the path which he marks out leads to our perfection and to himself, this is at once our duty and happiness; and why will we not walk in the plain, simple way?  ~William Ellery Channing

But as for me, I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, "You are my God.  My lot is in your hands..."
~Psalm 31:15

Dear Lord, lead me in the plain, simple way
that brings me to You and glorifies the Father.
Jesus, I trust in You!
