Proverbs 3:5 Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions. (VOICE)
The other day I invented a complete conversation with someone. Everything I said was so intelligent, and even brilliant. That person changed his ways because of my words.
Of course, that conversation only happened in my mind.
We who belong to the IWC (International Worriers Club) are good at inventing things. We invent scenarios that could happen, might happen, should happen. Of course, they seldom do.
Come on now. I know I’m not the only one who does this.
I am currently trying to give up my membership in the IWC and joining the OTG (Only Trusting God) group. It’s not easy. Worry is a habit, easily obtained and not so easily lost.
Living with a stepson with a brain illness (bipolar disorder) has often led to worry. I’ve worried about whether he’s taking his meds. I’ve worried about his choice of friends. I’ve worried about when his next outburst is going to be. But I’m slowly changing from a worrier to a truster.
You see, God is sovereign. He’s ultimately in control of everything in my life in the sense that everything that happens is filtered through Him. Even the bad things He allows because He always has my best interests at heart. He loves me.
He loves you, too. Drop the IWC and join the OTG bunch. The club is big and is growing. You are not alone. Read the Bible regularly. Go to church and make relationships with other believers. Pray about everything.
But the only requirement for joining the OTG club is a heart full of desire to change.
Let God do the heavy lifting.
