To Release ... Part 2


“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? … Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

(Matthew 6:25–34, NIV)

Some of the guys took me golfing on Sunday. My round of golf seems to reflect the realities of life we often face.

The weather included a bit of everything … sun and cloud, rain and wind, warmth and cold. Every once in awhile the mosquitoes came out and did their thing. From a golfing perspective, while some shots left hope, most made me feel better off at home.

Life often feels this way. We see some sun and feel its warmth, making us feel confident and positive. We find a moment of success only to feel as though it’s been taken away. Often our circumstances take away the stability we first feel; things happen in life that make us feel off-kilter and unstable.

How can we find consistency and confidence in our response to the happenings of everyday life?

As we saw Sunday, Hosea had to keep walking through the circumstances God had so clearly put him in. In the same way, we are called to continue walking through / trusting Him in the circumstances He has placed us in.

Let us keep working to release our anxieties to the Lord.

Let us keep making effort to not only trust God but to see Him within all we face in life.
