Do you ever feel you are making a huge mistake or just not living your life the way you feel God would be proud of? If so my friend, you’re not alone. We all have this feeling from time to time. Especially when we try to do our life with our thoughts not including God in the equation. One thing I learned about myself a few years back was I surely love a little bit of a feeling of I am in control. I like schedules, and systems to function at my highest self. However, the ironic thing is, every time I would get on this kick and way of thinking thought that I was in control, somehow life seemed tougher. Things would pop into my schedule unexpectedly and my natural response, was not a good one. I put on quite a pity party for myself. Let us just say looking back it was quite hysterical. It was learning that God really was in control, and letting that control go, and just asking him each day to help me in my daily life in everything I do. So, when I just felt like maybe I didn’t make good choices or decisions that I felt was God pleasing, or I tried to live for myself without inviting him into my daily living I felt awful. I started a new routine and even if I am in this mode for 3 days without catching myself in it, I stop and pray and say “God please forgive me for trying to take control, I know you have this! Please help me to rely strictly on you and continue to remind me that I need to ALWAYS come to you first before making any choice or decision.” You see we all have our moments where we really want to take over and be in control. But if we truly understand the wonderful grace and mercy our heavenly Father gives us. We would understand He’s got us covered! This my friend is the best feeling ever. Especially when we know life has many challenges, but we are never doing it alone, even when we like to think we are. Embrace in this thought this week, and when life throws you a curve ball, remember go to God talk to him, he’s your confidant and best friend! He will give you the right answers in his timing. While waiting to hear from him, live your life knowing you let go and let God and he in his timing will reveal to you what your next step is.
This week I challenge you to face your challenges by stopping for even a minute and asking God to take it, guide you, and then my friend take a deep breath and let it out and say to yourself “God’s Got Me!"
