Lack of Control Increase of Trust
Life is an unpredictable mess at times that's why learning to trust God is invaluable. I am realizing more and more that in my desire to be perfect and get things right I miss out on a genuine authentic and real relationship with God. By my not being completely honest with him out of fear that he might let me down like others have I am missing out on the true companionship and growth that our relationship has the potential to be... many times it is much easier to fill our lives with busyness and good things that we think we have it all together. Then one little bump in the road comes and we are like God why have you deserted me? When truthfully he was there all along wondering why we were spinning around trying to do it on our own.
The truth is life is busy -setting aside time alone with God isn't always easy but my intention more than anything this year is to come to know him in a real and authentic way for myself. I've had such high expectations for this year - and I'm sure like me sometimes it's easier to focus on the blessing that you are believing for rather than the greatest blessing of all - your relationship with Christ. Let's set our attention and focus on HIM this year and let HIS love consume our souls. Life is chaotic, stressful, unpredictable - our God is stable, loving, never changing. What more could we ask for?
2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
