Over the weekend I was debating on what to write for today’s post. So, I decided to share with you some things I’ve been struggling with for the past week or two.
Doubt and the fear of being a failure have always been a couple of my biggest obstacles to overcome, and they have reared their ugly heads again, this past week.
I am trying not to listen to them, but I can’t help wondering “What if”.
What if my blog isn’t successful? What if my rabbits never produce quality show rabbits? (My biggest hobby is raising rabbits. 🙂 ) What if these two dreams I’ve started and really want to do, just end up like all my other ideas and projects? Thrown away, because they got too hard, and I panicked, and let fear and doubt take over?
The root cause of this problem is my lack of faith in God.
I’m not trusting Him, I’m relying on me.
And that’s why I’m struggling with, and lose to fear. Because I know that I can’t. I know that I will fail at things through out my life, because I am too weak. I’m human.
I worry about tomorrow.
I’m one of those people that needs a plan and loves running around and being busy. It gives me an illusion of success.
But my success should not be what others think, how much money I make, if I go to collage, etc. It should be based on my relationship with my savorier Jesus Christ.
Am I obeying him, and doing his will? Am I living according to the standards he has made for me as a christian? Am I being a witness for him? Do I go to him first? Or to my fear and doubt? Do I trust Him to take care of me? Do I make the most out of today, because today if the gift he has given me, or do I hold off or worry about tomorrow, assuming that it will be there?
Matthew 6 says: (vs 25-26) “Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? (Vs. 33-34) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
God loves me and will provide for me, like he does for all his creation. I just need to let go of tomorrow, be my best for Him today, and trust in His plan.
Sounds easy, but it’s not! This is something that I will have to work on for possibly years. But that’s ok.
