A Valuable Lesson

What is one of the most valuable lessons you have learned this year so far?

Each day brings a new lesson, but God has been teaching me this particular one for quite some time. I am learning not to worry. God is in control of each and every circumstance I will ever face. It's taken me too much time to realize the importance of trusting Him. Not just trusting Him for our provisions, but trusting in His timing. I need to have faith in Him no matter how hopeless a situation may appear. He will always provide in His timing. He'll never leave us stranded.

There have been numerous times, just this year, when I've been afraid things won't work out. Be it with work, family situations, etc. Just when I feel like giving up completely, He steps in and works everything out. If I've seen Him do it a thousand times, why do I still get stressed over things? Just like Matthew 6:27 states. "Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" It's true The whole Bible is, lol. Worrying about something only makes things worse. I have decided to turn my worry into faith. Every single time a new obstacle arises, I'll thank God in advance for working everything out, because I know He always will!

  1. Most valuable lesson... just let things be. I sometimes work so hard at trying to make sure everything will work out, I don't live in the moment. Or I used to not live in the moment. Now, I let things be and trust that God will work everything out for my greater good as he always has. And things do... when I let go and focus on all the positive already happening, the best things happen.
