Luke 9:23-26
Pick up your cross, deny yourself and follow Him.

mhmmm

I used to worry so much, the big things, the small things-the things that didn’t even matter. Especially the small things, the kind of things normal people can handle. I lost sleep over the stupidest things, something someone said, did, didn’t do. Looking back I realized two things about life: One, its short so don’t worry. Two, don’t worry. Ever. God has it under control. 

Wow.

  • Me: God, can I ask You a question?
  • God: Sure
  • Me: Promise You won't get mad ...
  • God: I promise
  • Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
  • God: What do u mean?
  • Me: Well, I woke up late
  • God: Yes
  • Me: My car took forever to start
  • God: Okay
  • Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
  • God: Huummm
  • Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
  • God: All right
  • Me: And to top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
  • God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
  • Me: (humbled) OH
  • God: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
  • Me: (ashamed)
  • God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
  • Me (embarrassed): Okay
  • God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
  • Me (softly): I see God
  • God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
  • Me: I'm sorry God
  • God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.
  • Me: I will trust You.
  • God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.
