Worry is stupid.
Seriously, there’s no greater waste of time than to worry. It’s taken me 25 years to grasp this simple truth…
Today I faced a situation that could’ve taken the wind out of my sails, but I made a decision:
I chose to believe the Bible instead of all the negative junk.
This one choice made all the difference.
I’m still not sure how everything will play out, but I trust God.
He’s my provider.
He knows all my needs.
There are times my control freak, what’s-going -to-happen self fights for my attention.
But I continue taking my mind back to God’s Word. The more I stay in the Word, the less the little things throw me off.
I’m amazed at how much of the Bible is spent explaining the Father’s ability to provide for us.
Do not worry about tomorrow…
Consider the lilies and the ravens…
And He shall supply all your needs…
Seek ye first the kingdom and all these things (our needs) will be added to you…
God will take care of you!
Learning to trust His promises will take you far.
Whenever a thought tries to get your mind away from His loving provision, do not let it run loose in your brain!
Stay focused on the promises, on His love and not on the circumstances before you.
My first Monday in Tulsa went well.
I had a job interview and took care of a few other things that needed to be done.
Getting established takes time, so I’m happy that I drove out a week early.
It’s also nice to have a bit of down time before school starts. The last several months have been busy with the holidays and my extra job and preparing to move.
I am trying to not let my thoughts get to far ahead of me…
What will this be like?
I need to have this paid by this date.
My schedule is in free fall, which can make this recovering control freak nervous.
Part of what I am learning now is to enjoy the ride.
God is in control.
He’s the provider and sustainer.
I know all of these things, but keeping my thoughts in check is a full time job.
You can’t let them stray too far or you’ll lose sight of the truth: God is faithful.
I am so excited about school starting. Things are shaping up.
I am choosing to focus on the adventure ahead instead of the minute details that don’t matter in the long run.
