I'm sitting here at my desk at work and I feel like my heart is being pulled in ten thousand different directions. As I'm struggling to calm myself down I look up at a scripture that I printed and hung on my wall. It says,
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 KJV
When I got to the part that say's "Let not your heart be troubled..." in myself I was thinking, "Kelsey, why are you worrying about all this?" I had to take a moment and reread it. I feel like that was God telling me "Kelsey, darling, its okay I've got this covered. Your right in the palm of my hand." Now I just want to sit and look at that scripture. I literally feel like those words are coming straight from God's mouth to my heart.
Being human, there is a tendency for us to feel like we need to have complete control of our situations. So, when we aren't in control we feel like everything's chaotic, or at least I do. In reality, are we ever in complete control? No, God is, has been, and always will be in control. So what's the difference from every other time and now? There isn't a difference, besides the fact that we are facing a new challenge in life that we aren't quite sure about. That's why it's so important for us not to face these challenges alone. We need those people who will stand right beside us with wisdom and an encouraging word to help us trust in God and stay on the right track.
A friend gave me this scripture a minute ago and it goes great with what I'm sharing with y'all. it says,
And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Luke 12:25-26 KJV
I know for a fact that I can't make myself grow any taller, and I don't try to or even worry about it. It's the same situation with the rest of life, if there's nothing we can do about it, why worry? It's out of our hands, God is in control. There is so much peace in knowing that God is in control. Praise the Lord, GOD IS IN CONTROL!
