I would like to share with you my feeling on life lately. Lately it seems like I’ve been caught in this routine of being short of happiness. One day I feel great, the next I feel like a sinking ship trying to sail through life – powerless. Like a sail boat with a broken mainsail, no matter how much strength I muster-up, once I get going, problems and issues arise These “critical” life issues (at least they seem critical at the time) would try to keep me from soaring and prospering and from being my personal best.
Worries about my family, relationships,living situation, job, or if have been as faithful to God as I should, would settle in my heart and literally take the breath and joy of life from me. It’s even draining to write this – plainly stated, “worrying” will steal your life. Worrying will take the life force out of you because it is a NEGATIVE energy that the enemy feeds on to try and keep you in bondage and stop you from living a life of love and joy. That is the kind of life God intends for you to live — a life that gives glory to the Holy Trinity – the father, the son and the holy spirit. A life full of reward and fulfillment. A life that allows us to get up in the morning and take on any challenge that comes our way with strength, poise and vigor in our spirits. A life that has on thanking and praising God in spirit and in the truth for each day of life. God wants us to live a life care-free because he loves us, the word of God says “cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
God, our creator, does not want us to worry. So please be reminded (as I remind myself) to cast all your fears to God through prayer. The bible speaks directly on many occasions about worry. If you feel plagued by worry and feelings of defeat in your current situation, remember God’s word on WORRY which is perfectly displayed in his living word via Matthew 6:25-34, which reads:
