We all worry.
We worry about money. Relationships. Children. Provisions. Health. Safety. Our path in life.
Mostly, we worry about the stuff we can't control. We can't control the future, and that makes us crazy.
Every one of us worries, sooner or later. Some make a lifestyle out of it. And what worrying says about us is that fear has power over us. It says that we'd rather fret than have faith. We'd rather control than surrender. We'd rather live in slavery than in freedom.
Where is our faith? Where is our trust? I've been there when the bottom falls out and life unravels. And what I learned is that having faith when everything's coming up roses... is virtually meaningless.
It's when your world comes crashing down... That's the moment you show the world what kind of power fear has. That's when faith becomes real... or doesn't.
When the rubber meets the road, will you give in to worry, or will you trust and believe?
