All This Time – Britt Nicole
Today is “one of those days”. Actually, I’ve been having a few of them in a row, it seems. I’m feeling pressured, stressed. I’m a bit overwhelmed by everything I feel I have to juggle right now. If I look at things realistically, I know I’m overreacting a bit. As usual, I’m putting a lot of the stress on myself, and worrying about things when I know it doesn’t help at all. Worry is my enemy; unfortunately, a familiar enemy that keeps turning up. Worry keeps me from putting my faith in God, where it should be, and places the burden on my shoulders, when I can’t handle it all on my own. Today, I don’t feel God right beside me, which makes me a little disoriented. I know it’s my own stubbornness and insecurities getting in the way. So, today I need a reminder that God is there, even if my vision is clouded, that he’s ready to help me through the days ahead. He knows the bigger plan, and I don’t, so all I can do is put my trust in him and let things unfold. I will contribute my honest, sincere efforts to the tasks that I’m worried about facing in the next week, and let him take care of the rest.
All this time, from the first tear cried, to today’s sunrise, and every single moment between, You were there, you were always there, it was you and I, you’ve been walking with me all this time. Help me to remember that I’m really not alone, that YOU are always looking out for me. I’ve spent too much time and energy on worrying, it’s time to let it go and remember to trust in your desire for good things for your children.
