No matter how much we may plan. prepare. budget.
The reality is most everything in life is completely out of our hands.
So why not put it into His?
There are times when life is thrown a loop. When what we have planned out, just doesn't happen. Or ABBA changes up our path in getting there. Only He is able to see the whole paradigm. Only He knows what is ahead and being His Beloved, He has laid out the best plan for His.
We have to have Faith. We have to have Trust. We have to submit and follow His lead. Accept His time. His way.
satan wants nothing more than for us to focus on the things trying to tear down, causing us to doubt. he wants to rip our eyes off our ABBA and become consumed by the worry, envy, jealousy, bitterness, anger (just to name a few). To miss out on the innumerable blessings ABBA continually rains down upon us, as we walk through this world.
It is during the times we take our eyes off of our ABBA, are the times we become blind to the blessings surrounding us. If we allow our "self", we could let all the rains of life ruin the parade of living He has placed us in.
There is so much more to this life.
All the moments of "sitting on pins and needles" are such a waste of time. How often is this the way of our living life? Becoming anxious about the unknown outcomes, the "what if's", and take our focus off of Him? Of doubting His being in complete and total control? How many moments do we waste, instead of enjoying the moment which only comes once?
I mean - really - all we need to know is His reminder, over and over, throughout His Word -
