God has Already Seen Your Entire Life, He Knows how to Get You Through.
Updated: Sep 30
When life starts to feel chaotic, we reach for control.
The unknown is scary.
The future can feel dreadful.
The uncertainty of it all can leave us feeling fearful.
So, we reach for control because it gives us a temporary feeling of safety.
Yet, we know deep down we can’t and we won’t be able to control or determine what happens in the future.
There is just so much that isn’t in our hands.
The thing is, we weren’t created to know the future for a reason. God didn't make us to know the future.
And He knew what He was doing.
Quite the contrary, He calls us to just live in today.
He calls us to being present with Him, and others, right where we are at. Right now.
I know its so easy for anxiety and worry to sneak in and try to derail us from enjoying today. But when you start to feel your mind taking you down that path of future-oriented fear...
When you start to wonder how that situation is going to turn out...
Our what life would be like if the worst case scenario happened...
Remind yourself that you have no idea what the future holds, regardless of what your thoughts are telling you.
Breathe and look around you. Look at what is surrounding you right now.
Focus on today.
How can you get closer to God today?
What could you do to embrace today?
And on those really hard days? The ones that feel so overwhelming...
You might just have to take it hour by hour or minute by minute.
That’s ok. One moment at a time.
Give yourself some grace. God certainly has.
Remember that God has already walked the entire path of your life.
He’s with you now, and He’s already at the end, too.
He knows the future, but it’s this very moment He wants to bring your attention to. Even if fear rears its ugly head, this day isn't a waste. Look for the beauty in it. It's right around you, even if it's hard to see.
The unknown is scary, but remember that there is no unknown for Him.
