Monday, Sept. 21: A favorite quote/expression and how it has impacted you.
I remember the first time I saw this quote – it was one of those wood wall hangings my mom’s friend bought for the restaurant she works at. It was the one that really stuck with me because of the power of the truth in those words.
This quote is something for me to remember every second of my life, especially in the rough times where it doesn’t seem like things are going right. Right now, for example, with the rough patch I’m going through now that I’m out of school and looking for a job in my field. So far, it’s been a bust, but knowing that God has my future in His hands is the most comforting thing for me during this time because I know that He’ll open the right one for me.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:34)
But this really goes for every part of my life. I have no idea where I’ll be living in 5 years, who I’ll end up marrying, if I’ll even get married, how many jobs I’ll go through… I have no idea what will happen. Sure, I can try to plan, but ultimately God is laying down my path and I’m more than eager to see what He has in store.
We’re going to have stressful points in our lives where we feel like there’s no way out, there’s no doubt about that. Of course, there’s no point in worrying about it either. Worrying doesn’t do anything other than freak us out more. We just need to put our faith and trust in God and know that He’s in control and everything is going to work out.
“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” (Matthew 6:27)
