“Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, its cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.” ~ Arthur Somers Roche
I don’t know how long this post will be (since it’s not going to be structured whatsoever), but I’m just going to wing it!
So this has been in my mind lately and since I went to church today, I’m going to write something that I am hoping inspires you or aspire you readers to always have faith no matter the circumstances. Also, knowing that where you are is not your end. You can change it!
For those that aren’t Christian, you don’t have to read this if you don’t want to. If you want to criticize, be my guest. But in the end, God loves you and pray that He blesses you and keep you safe.
I wanted to let you readers know how much God will always take care of you, no matter the circumstances you go through.
It may not be in the way you wanted it to be, but He still does.
The bible says “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 NIV
He will supply and meet all your needs, if only you will let Him.
I found myself in that situation not too long ago (and still ongoing), where I wanted to fix something but in the end, I couldn’t, out of all my efforts.
That’s when I just gave it to God. And now I just pray “Lord, I trust you and know that you will meet all my needs for the day. ”
When you give your cares to God, you don’t have to worry about what’s going to happen the next day or the day after.
Jesus did say “Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 NIV
So if you’re worried about something right now, I urge you to give to God and let Him take care of you.
Sometimes, people, or the world per se, will bring forth words and discouragement that will cause you to worry and lead you to think negatively.
It’s okay to be concerned, but with worry, you’re not getting anywhere. You’re not going anywhere.
What should you do with worry? Place it on the altar. Place it before God. And in return? Go about your day with faith and continue to live and breathe like you normally do.
Life is too short for worries.
Life is too short for negativity.
And you know what worrying does? It distracts you. Worrying stops you from moving forward. Worrying is basically fear.
YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN THAT YOU WORRY ABOUT!
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:26 NIV
So you see, God supplies. He always does.
So if you’re worried about anything, place it before Him.
And in turn, live your life, step out in faith, be wise as you take those steps (with the guidance of the Spirit), and live with joy and peace.
There will be days when you don’t feel joy nor peace. That’s okay. Just remember that when you’re in a negative state of mind, you’re NOT getting anywhere.
Pray to God, Reflect, and Move On.
That’s all I wanted to say.
