Trust and Obey

Today was a very good day. I think I had a major breakthrough this evening. I realized life may be different than I thought it was going to be, but that is okay. Relationships look different than I thought, but that is okay. Will continuing to adjust be hard? Absolutely, but that is okay. New is different. New is not necessarily bad.

At CR tonight, one of the small group questions was: Philippians 4:6 reads, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Do you believe it is possible not to worry?

As I thought about this I realized I have started to worry again. I am starting to analyze all these things in my future instead of living in my present. I used to be worthy of winning a Nobel Prize in over analyzation. Maybe I should live in my present, pray about things and be happy I am taken care of today. I am happy I am taken care of today.

Odd how it took until tonight to have this revelation. I was listening to the classic “Trust and obey, for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey” earlier today or yesterday and thinking how that was something I needed to do and not over think it. Just follow.

And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? – Matthew 6:28-30
