Just listen....listen how?
Just listen intently....listen intently is what I keep hearing over and over....
My head seems unable to rest the last few months. I am constantly thinking, planning, prioritizing, and worrying. Yes, I admit it, I worry. Too much. I thought I had gotten better at my worrying - when in reality I had not. Turns out my life was running fairly "smooth" therefore not much cause for worrying. Then one day - boom - you know the "boom" feeling right? Where you literally feel the weight of the world crashing down on and around you. Well, that is where I have been the last
BUT....I have complete hope and trust in the One who does. I know that in the midst of all that is going on, I can look to and call on the One for whom our hope is in. The only One who can calm the storm that seems to be raging around me. I know that only He can calm me. Only He can provide that lasting, sustaining peace that nothing and no one else can provide. So why do I even worry when I know the one who brings me peace? I do not know....I wish I knew. I wish I could skip the worry stage completely. I pray one day I will. For now I am just going to focus on the One who knows my worries and has only His best in mind for me and my family. I am trying to focus on just listening...listening intently to what His direction is.
