“‘For I know the plans I have for you-’ this is the Lord’s declaration- ‘plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’” Jeremiah 29:11 (HCSB)
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of anxiety. It affects me everyday; in decision making, trying new things, writing, and thinking about my future.
Over J-term this school year, I decided to try cross fit. I had no prior knowledge of what a cross fit workout required physically, but I wanted to try it, so I did. Long story short, it requires a lot of strength. I have no muscular structure whatsoever, so I ended up having an anxiety attack my first night.
I hate hearing people edit my writing. I’m very sensitive, so when people edit something I wrote, I feel like they’re comments are aimed at me and not my work. I end up shutting down and not hearing what they’re saying to make my writing better.
I think I want to get my Master’s degree in Library Science, but I’m going to have to foot the bill for grad school. The cheapest option I’ve found so far is over $50,000 and I have no way to pay for it.
I’ve prayed for a while about all these problems that have pushed me to my breaking point. God answered them all with a simple phrase.
If you’re waiting for a magic answer from God, He’s waiting for you to seek Him. Seek God, and don’t lose faith. God is in control.
Prayer: Father, I feel lost. Give me peace and show me the way You’re leading me in Your time. Amen.
