What good does it do?

Let’s face it we all do it at one time or another. Some of us way more than most. We worry about almost everything in our life. Work, finances, health, family and the list can go on and on. Honestly what good does it do us. Worry stresses us out. It can cause us physical harm if we worry enough like headaches, stomach aches etc…

What would it be like to be worry free. What would it be like to realize that we do not have control over anything anyway. To realize that God is the one who has everything in His hands and if we surrender to His will for our lives and live in obedience the best we can He will take care of all of it anyway. Easier said than done right.

Well the above verse tells us that worry adds nothing to our life. To me that plain and simple tells us there is no point to worrying about anything. Surrender to the fact that we might go through issues in life. People in our life my get sick. They might get hurt. Some might even pass away. Surrender to the fact that we might never get answers to why those things happen. But whatever the case may be we have to remember that we live in a broken and sin filled world. The hope we have is that God is in control and if we obey His commands he will make our paths straight.

God has got it all under control. He knows what we need better than we do. So He has got our back.

New Year New You!

As we welcome 2021 in hopes of a better year than the last I was sitting here writing a journal entry. The thing that was put on my heart was we all look to a new year as a new start. We try to find a way to create a better version of ourselves. We make exercise plans, diet plans, budgets to get a hold of our finances and on and on. Does any of these things really change our hearts? Does any of these things really change our attitudes? Most likely in most cases they do not.

There is hope. All the things I mentioned above are great things to have in your life but God gives us the one true thing that can make us new. He gave us His son Jesus. When we invite Jesus into our lives He can make us new! He can help you make the old things disappear whatever those bad habits, bad attitudes or brokenness might be. Sometimes instantly, sometimes it might take time. Just allow Him to give you the strength to accomplish it and it will happen. Just ask Jesus into your life.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:17‬

When you decide to accept Jesus into your life do not try to walk your new life of faith alone. Find other Christians or a good bible teaching church to help you in your new journey. Start a bible reading plan to dig deeper into God’s word to find God’s will for your life. It will be the best decision you ever made.

Be Blessed, Dave
