This is a sad truth of mine, that I was not willing to admit to myself for such a long time.
My problem is the fact that I worry about what the future brings and how it will affect me…. when I know that God’s word says don’t worry about yourself and simply focus your attention on Thee.
I fail to do this often, and in return, I get the same result. When I ask God to help me overcome my selfishness He gives me a halt.
Why should He help me when I continue to worry about myself? He did, in fact say to worry ONLY about everyone else.
This is not having faith in Him when I worry like this. It is actually me being selfish and living without bliss.
I do know better, and I should have more faith in Him by now, but admitting this fault to myself gives me hope somehow.
Now, I need to take the right steps going forward so that I can live more like He wants me to; a life of service instead of greed is what I actually need. I need to pray, spend more time helping others, and less time in pity parties, gossiping, and foreboding. Having faith and living His way will lead me to a life with more happiness and less selfishness.
1 Peter 2:23 New King James Version helped me write this message today.
23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously.
I hope that you are having a great weekend and I hope that you have a great upcoming week.
