(Matthew 6:34) NIV
"Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Jesus teaches us not to worry but if he is taking care of all the birds of the air, that he will absolutely take care of us as we are more important to him than the birds! So, when you are feeling alone down my friend, know this God is right there with you. It is God’s gift of grace that he gives us enough for one day. So many of us take on too many things in life and we then feel the anxiety and worry kick in for the future. Just be reminded God wants you to have peace, joy and happy filled lives. Having trouble in your marriage or other relationships such as friendships, work relationships with co-workers or a boss? The hard part is this we must do our part in this and maybe look at the facts of the matter are we compromising our values to please these people in our lives? Are we letting go of the “power of choice?” What type of commitments are you making in these relationships that could possibly be hurting you? And “WHO” is it or “WHAT” situation is it that is making you feel powerless? These types of things can make us feel anxious for tomorrow. You see my friend there is no liberation in your life without healthy boundaries. There are good things about people pleasing but it crosses the line from good to bad when it affects the way we are living our lives in a unhealthy and unsustainable way. If this is you right now, I challenge you this week to sit down and write down these “people” “relationships” where you feel you are giving your power away to. Then ask yourself am I losing my peace and joy for life because of this? meantime, remember what you value, what you have to say and what you are able to do and value that. Your time, your families time and take good care of you!
