As we all may know from my previous blogs, I am a worrywart. I specialize in worry, scheduling, planning, etc. I stumble over the meticulous details that I think should be even more specific. I plan spontaneity.
Granted, I have gotten better, but it’s still a struggle for me. It will be. I am wired that way. I’m wired to need specificity. I’m not fond of not knowing what’s going to happen next. I have a “need” to know, but I can’t always know what’s coming, can I?
It is my belief that God puts me in situations where I could never guess what would happen next. And I believe it’s to help me get over this false necessity. God is teaching me not to worry over the details. He’s saying don’t worry about the job. Don’t worry about the relationship. Don’t worry about your finances. Trust. Trust where I have you at right now.
What God constantly reminds me is that I don’t get to be His child and worry. The two will never go hand in hand, because they were never meant to. I forfeited my right to worry when I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior.
