Today I found my mind racing with worry about something that I am dealing with. Then I got up from my desk to go to the men’s room (TMI, I know) and did so without grabbing my cane. On the way back, I noticed no limp, no stagger, almost like nothing ever was wrong. Not bad I thought I am getting so much stronger every day, and that’s when my inner Keanu Reeves took over. WHOA! I thought that’s it exactly; I’m getting stronger every day. When did I start getting stronger? When I put my faith in the Lord and began doing things like walking every day and riding the exercise bike when I quit worrying about will I ever walk like before? That’s when I started getting stronger.
So why am I letting worry consume me now?
Look what the Lord has already done for me.
Look at all I have to be grateful for.
I only need to keep my faith in the Lord and keep working on a solution because worry can only fill my soul with fear. But faith in the Lord and action on my part will lead me to the successful outcome I seek. In this, I do not doubt because, with Him, nothing is impossible.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 New International Version (NIV)
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
