Don't Worry, Be Happy
Are God's promises truth to me? Exactly how much do I trust Him? Am I willing to rest completely in His love and goodness? Do I still push every situation through my interpretation of truth or am I willing to trust in His Word?
His Word clearly states over and over again that we are not to worry about tomorrow or dwell on the pain of our pasts. But yet our very natural seems to go on auto pilot to the worry mode. It is because of our pride and constant resolve to control not only our own destiny but also the destiny of others. The very act of worry is a act of self involvement. If it goes unchecked, we can become neurotic control freaks.
The past 6 months, I think that I have covered ever emotion known to man. I know that there is a greater lesson to be learn through this season of such uncertainty. Long term plans do not leave my lips without my heart aching a bit. But yet, I refuse to dwell on those thoughts because to do so would mean that I have lost hope and nothing could be further from the truth.
I know that God is with me and always has been and will not abandon me now. Isn't it a blessing that the Lord doesn't treat us like people treat us? His plans for us are to bless and prosper us. We just simply must believe and trust in Him, then He opens the heavens and blesses us beyond our imaginations.
So I will not not dwell in the past, nor will I obsess on the uncertainty of the future. But daily, I will renew my mind in His Goodness and know that He has my life in His Hands. And that is all that really matters, everything else is just a distraction.
