Do you ever worry? What are your worries?
The economy? Terrorism? Your health? Your husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend? Kids? Your job? Your spiritual life? Your career? Your grades? Your past? Your future? Your family? Your financies? Your weaknesses? Your death?......and the list goes on and on and on...doesn't it?
I remember there was a song or jingle by John W. Peterson I use to sing,when I was much younger and the lyrics,made a lot of sense:
Why worry,when you can pray?
Trust Jesus,He'll be your stay.
Don't be a doubting Thomas,
Rest fully on His promise,
Why worry,worry,worry,when you can pray?
It's a cute and reassuring tune but,I still worry. Worry as I've come to understand,is a total waste of time and it doesn't change anything rather,it takes from you. All it does is,steal your joy and keeps you very busy,doing nothing..... Honestly,at times prayer feels pretty lame because,when we are deep in our worries,we feeel God has abandoned us or even hates us,or not interested at all in helping us and our situations. But the truth remains that,He is God and there is a reason He is withholding that job,contract,or that major breakthrough from us because,He will never give us anything He knows we ain't ready for.
The funny thing about God and our needs is that,He knows already what we need,and expects us to just ask and be patient while He works the process out.................. Always remember that,PATIENCE and TRUST is a virtue anyone who is expectant,must have.
Remain beautiful,beautiful people..
