Do you ever get scared about the future?
All the “what ifs”?
What if “this” happens?
What if “that” happens?
I have to be honest. Even though I’ve been a Christian most of my adult life, if I allow my mind to project into the future far enough, I get scared, really scared.
I fear losing the people I love. Not necessarily through death but in any way that takes people away from me. I wonder how I would survive.
Would I survive?
And yet I have. While my mom’s death continues to make me sad, while it has brought to light some areas I need to focus on, I have survived.
And when I feel that way, I know exactly what I’m doing. I’m looking into the future and not accounting for the fact that God is already there. When the time comes,
He will provide.
He will equip.
He will sustain.
It’s what I wrote about last week when I said that sometimes we live so much in the present we forget that the future we worried about yesterday, is here today. And God has been there right along, in the past, the present, and will be in the future.
Said another way, “Today is the future I worried about yesterday.”
I have such great admiration for people who step out and move in faith without having a clue what the future holds.
Anyway, if you are fearful about tomorrow, I’m not going to tell you not to be. We probably all have reasons to be afraid of something. Don’t berate yourself for your fears. Talk them over with God in total honesty and let God direct you.
Much more about talking to God honestly tomorrow.
For now, God bless and I hope you have a good day.
