For the last 27 months I’ve been on a Christian journey.
Since April of 2021 I’ve attended a Christian church every Sunday, became the owner of a bible, installed a bible app on my phone, volunteered for my church, attended a weekly small group, and I’ve made many amazing Christian friends.
What I have come to learn to my core is that the ONLY way we will make it through struggles, difficulties, challenges, and painful situations is to have a firm and unwavering belief in something we can not see, touch, smell, or taste – a power much greater than ourselves.
Believing in one’s self is not enough AND there will be plenty of times we just WON'T possess the capacity to believe in ourselves. We’ll have experiences where we feel massively disconnected from who we are, where we’re going, and what we want.
Perhaps as you’re reading this right now you are saying to yourself:
I feel lost.
I don’t know what’s next.
You’re worried, you’re concerned, and you don’t know how to move through whatever struggle you are going through.
Here’s the thing . . .
God is NOT worried about you at all. God is placing you right at this very moment in the situation(s) you are dealing with for a reason. There is something for you to learn YET you more than likely won’t realize it for some time.
I vividly remember in 2013 the depression, the anxiety, the extreme worry, the self-beration that I was not good enough to be successful. Ten years later I am in a much different place.
I now know God was with me and is always with me.
The lyrics, “God’s not worried, so why do I worry?” are taken from the song “I’ll Give Thanks.” I highly encourage you to listen. It’s a beautifully supportive song.
Seeing you believing in a power much greater than yourself,
P.S: If you’re a vocabulary geek like me or just in case you’re wondering, “self-beration” is not a real word. I made it up and have been using it for years.
