This blog post is all about me.
Just in case you start thinking I'm trying to get all "preachy" on you, I wanted to make you understand. The following is a lesson for myself.
1 Peter 5:7 (KJV) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Sometimes, it seems I am carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders. And then I remember, that's not my responsibility. It belongs to God.
Jeremiah 10:23 (KJV) O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
There are nights, as I struggle to fall asleep, that my brain recites a litany of failures and worries. And yet, my last resort is prayer. I know that my Heavenly Father is able to meet all my needs, why don't I have more faith in Him?
Proverbs 3:6 (KJV) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
I asked God to give me fresh eyes...to look at my life in a new way. To see what I have, not what I am lacking. He has granted my request. And slowly, ever so slowly, I am recognizing what was before me all the time. And realizing, that with my life in God's Hands, there's no need to fear.
