“Today, the world seems to have rotated on a wrong axis. Everything turns out to be wrong!” Have you ever experienced something like this?
You’re late, your boss is calling, you’re in a hurry, and then you remembered you left the important file you’re supposed to present to the team which was why you’re in a hurry in the first place! Or you’re so tired, you lack sleep, you helped out with errands because a parent asked of you, and then forgot to do a requirement for school. To top it off, the professor who never checks assigned homeworks decided to do so and gave an exemption to the final project requirement for those who submitted!
Mad? Irritated? And then you scream, “Leave me alone!” but everyone doesn’t seem to hear it. They still continue on with the things to do tomorrow, long exams and projects. And then again you remembered, you’re in school, you’re at work, you have a reputation to take care of. If you could relate, I pray this article would bless your heart.
In Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Take a moment to breathe. Be alone and away from the pressure, the stress even the opinions of people. First remember who you are… You are God’s Child.
Examine your heart. Why are you complaining? Why are you bothered? What could God be teaching you from all of this? Ultimately, what does God expect from you?
And after all’s been said and done, pray. Trust your Father’s Heart. He not only has a reason for all these happening (not to mention all of it at the same time), but He has a purpose. Let go of yours.
“My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8-9
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4: 6,7.
Be alone. Dive into His Presence.
