We always want to be in control. We are too terrified when things become awry. We cannot handle anything that we cannot control, we want to know what’s ahead of us before we move forward. Right now I am staying in the foreign land, I made a lot of adjustments and until now I am still adjusting. God taught me so many things, he allowed me to be in situations where my faith was tested. I’ve learned to trust him even when everything seems in chaos, to believe in him even when the future seems unsure, to have faith in him even when the path I am walking seems cloudy.
Just a little faith in him, that’s what he requires, like that of the mustard seed.
And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith ; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move ; and nothing will be impossible to you .Matthew 17:20 (NASB)
In this life of uncertainties all we need is faith, trusting God that he’s in control. If you don’t believe that God is in control of everything and has purpose for you and for the things that are happening in your life, you will be swimming in the seas of purposelessness
Time and time again, worries and doubts attack me, I still have this thought of “what if” but do I really need to worry? The Lord has shown his faithfulness to us in so many ways and almost all of the worries I had in the past didn’t really come to pass.
Worry is just the way of the devil to steal our peace, joy and trust, if we succumb to him and fail to watch; soon we will be drowning and drifted away by the waves of nothingness.
As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God because He was my friend.
But then instead of leaving them with Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.
At last I snatched them back and cried, “How can you be so slow?”
“My child”, He said, “What could I do? You never did let go”.
