In the last couple of months, I have experienced some difficult circumstances and was able to evaluate my faith and trust in God. During this period I was really stressed out, couldn’t sleep, irritated, upset, the whole nine yards, because I couldn’t figure out how to turn it all around. Then a week later God gave me the answer to my problem, and when that happened, I breathed a sigh of relief until I realized I was on an emotional roller coaster. Every time I felt I was in a bind, I would get stressed out until the solution to the problem would arise, and then would start over again when the next issue reared its ugly head. At that moment, I wished that I didn’t spend so much time stressed out over a situation that in the end worked itself out. I felt foolish, like I didn’t trust God. That’s a bitter pill to swallow, but every time I would get worked up over a situation that I couldn’t do anything about, that’s exactly what my actions were saying. It’s like a mother who wakes her child up every morning but every night the child doesn’t believe that she will do it the following day. The child is unable to sleep because they’re worried that their mother isn’t going to do what she said she would do, even though she has proven herself time and time again. God has proven Himself time and time again in our lives, yet we act like every new situation is worse than before and maybe this time it won’t work out. My repeated actions were looking like mistrust and I started to think of the time wasted on worrying, instead of just enjoying what I had and what I was able to do. That day of revelation about myself allowed me to decide to get off of the emotional roller coaster of mistrust and worry. I wanted to be able to rest in the peace of God knowing that if He said He would do it, then that was the end of my problems. Don’t waste the beauty of today and all that you have been blessed with on the fear of tomorrow and what it might or might not bring. When you truly trust someone, you can rest in knowing that all is or will be well eventually. Do what you can do today and let God handle the rest, then release yourself to enjoy the abundance of what you do have in this day.
