Rejoicing

Worry.

Worry is to give way to anxiety or unease; to allow one’s mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles.

Worry is a state of anxiety and uncertainty over actual or potential problems.

This is something we often do that is so natural for us. Yet the Lord calls us to do the unatural, the unpopular, and the unexpected.

No matter what difficulties or problems that may occur in our lives, He is constant. It is easier said than done some may say, as diffculites vary from one person to another. And it is okay to feel hurt, upset or devastated. Yet we have a choice, we have the ability with the Holy Spirit within us to overcome difficulties as the Lord overcame the world.

Recently I’ve understood how temporary everything is. God can easily take away our peace of mind, our bank accounts, or our loved ones, and yes even the ones with pawprints.

He can often not give us the answer we are looking or hoping for.

But do we trust Him? Do we trust that the Creator of the Universe who is also our Good Father knows what is best for His beloved Children? Do we trust that He knew what He was doing in the first place?

As Habakkuk put it:

“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be jopyful in God my Savior.

The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of deer, He enables me to tread on the heights.”

Habakkuk 3:17-19
