Living Forward is an adventure in itself. We live forward with eyes that do not know what tomorrow will bring. In fact, we do not know what the next hour will bring, let alone tomorrow.
In God’s Word we read, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) In Matthew 6:25-34 we read ““Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
Anxious thoughts, worry, and fretting often come when we do not know what is ahead. As women (men, too) it is natural for us to want to see what is coming, what is next and be in control. That is our human spirit! To control our life.
We often find the more we want to control, the less we have control. The less we control, the more anxious we become, and soon we find our relationships are stressed, we are not sleeping or eating well, and our work, our focus and our physical life is suffering.
Wow! Why do we do this to ourselves? Where is the joy in living if we are anxious, stressed and fretting all the time?
Yep, I’ve lived this way…personally, socially, in my work and financially! What I have found is I can stop the hamster wheel! I can get off and start over! I can turn my burdens over to God and when I do, God comes through! He takes care of my needs, He blesses me with dreams I never imagined and He gives me eyes to see clearly what Trusting in Him, Resting in His promises and Living Each Day is it’s own adventure with peace and joy!
