I love it when my devotionals speak to me. Of course, every word of God is supposed to speak to you in some way, but when it feels like God sat at his desk and wrote a special little memo just for me on that particular day, it adds a little pep to my step. Today’s devotional spoke about making sure you have an attitude of faith and are operating in it constantly. By adopting that attitude you are able to not worry about tomorrow because you know that there is someone who is directing your steps.
I happen to be a worrier. I worry about the little things and the big things... the important and the unimportant. I even make up things in my mind that will probably never happen and then spend time worrying about them just in case. Sometimes it can be hard for me to simply live my life in a constant assurance that everything will indeed work out how it is supposed to. A “go with the flow” person I am not. But the fact of the matter is, faith is a gift and I don’t embrace that gift as much as I should. So I’m going to work on that. No worrying about my career because I know that he has a plan for my talents. I have been reminded on more than one occasion that it is in his hands and his timing alone. I should not worry about the fact that my nephew might walk down the aisle before me. Not only is he preparing someone for me, I have a feeling I still need to be fixed a little. Finances should not stress me out because I have always been provided for…even when it made NO sense. You get the point, right? It’s important to place your trust where it belongs and give up the reins on all the things that will weigh your spirit down.
I just wanted to share that with you. Perhaps if you missed Church today you could use a little inspiration.
P.S. I stretched out my profile because I was hearing that it was hard to read. Does this help? Or do I need to change the colors or something?
