Are you worried about the future?
I spent decades of my life controlled by fear, worry, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, restlessness--all because I wanted total control over the outcomes of all things. I wanted to know exactly what would happen in every situation and place I went. I wanted to keep from experiencing pain, hurt, or any discomfort.
But truly there is no control in life. There is no way to craft every situation, experience, and interaction into the perfect one--into one where there is no pain, hurt, discomfort, etc.
I'm sitting in a hotel room writing this. Part of me wonders how I got here (yes by plane) but that I CHOSE to come here on a plane and experience this time is amazing--because in the past decades it would have been very hard to get me to do all that I am doing right now. I can't control how I am treated here. I can't control anything.
I can only do each thing with the intention to serve, support, absorb, learn, and experience.
If we rely on God to lead us and to craft the outcome of our circumstances then we will have joy, peace, patience, and goodness in our lives.
If we choose to lead our lives and our interactions with the intention to serve God's light and love to all those around us then we will simply walk through each thing without stress and strain.
God simply asks us to absorb His word and BE His word and let all the rest be in His hands.
Let's choose today to simply BE His word--love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, self-controlled and disciplined and THEN watch the goodness of the Lord flood into your life.
