I had an interesting experience today. I got back an assignment and my grade was not stellar. I was upset and also upset by the instructor’s comments. Almost immediately I began to fret, but then I stopped myself and realized that no matter what God doesn’t want fretting or worry. He wants trust. I have been doing pretty good at trusting and I realized in that instant that I need to continue to trust him for the final outcome in the course. It is certainly not hopeless and I know God is in charge. It is up to me to trust.
For the rest of the day I did pretty good at not fretting and I never truly gave into real deepseated worry. I know the battle is not won, but I also know I can win it by continuing to remind myself that God is in charge and he has my best interests at heart.
I am looking forward to tomorrow and more chances. I am also looking forward to seeing the final adoption of a sweet little girl by a couple in our church. I know it will be a blessing for them, for the little girl and for all who attend. God loves and blesses us so much.
