Worrier vs. Warrior
Are you the warrior that keeps marching on without a care in the world ... or are you the worrier that stresses about stress before there is stress to stress about?
I have this thing I think that is called OCD per Google. In fact, it stresses me out that OCD is not in alphabetical order. If you are truly obsessive about stuff, shouldn't it be CDO? We shall call it compulsive disorder of obsessing from now on.
With that, guess what lesson I'm working on in life?
There are days that I wish He would give up on this HOT blazin' mess. There are other days I think He has.
They say not to look back because we aren't headed there; however, I have found myself looking back a lot lately. By looking back, I can see that the times my faith was tested the most, the larger the opportunity was to grow. Sometimes I thrived and I grew through that. Sometimes I failed yet I grew through the learning experience. So did I really fail?
I don't know your struggles. I don't know the stress your stressing about, but I do know that someone has it all figured out.
Matthew 17:20 is the first verse that comes to my mind because my faith is barely a mustard seed most days. I wouldn't have CDO, after all, if it was any larger. I hope you'll be inspired by it like I am today.
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
