It has been one of those weeks where the stress level has officially hit an all-time high. You know, no one specific thing….just multiple things. Everything is due at the same time, people are asking things of you that you didn’t even plan for, and then, you’re told with hours to prepare, that you are presenting to a senior executive.
On top of all that you have an interesting conversation that leaves your mind turning for days. Those conversations where you are not sure how to react to, where the person’s head was when they spoke to you or even what are their true motives, because they could be looking out for you with a clean heart and mind—but you are doubtful.
Why is it that sometimes we question every motive and comment that is directed at us?
Needless to say, I felt overwhelmed and had to keep reminding my overactive brain to slow down and just breathe!
At one point during the week my husband (Miguel) notices my load and also how I am processing it all and the “lens” I am using to evaluate everything. He tells me, “Silvia, don’t worry so much. You know that in every part of your life, even in your career, God has always worked things out for your good.”
Wow. Simple words, yet a powerful reminder that I needed to hear.
Yes, God has always come through for me so why was I doubting Him now or worse, why was I trying to figure things out on my own. Why was I spending so much time and energy—that I didn’t currently have on this?
Because, I had forgotten!
How many times throughout the day do we try to help God along or worse, suggest to Him how things should go in our lives? I imagine that we give God a good laugh! For example, it’s like a toddler at a playground trying to figure something out that takes their Mom two seconds to do it for them. There’s nothing wrong with the toddler. They just don’t have the skills to do what they need—it’s the mother’s job!
My dear it’s God’s job to take care of us and he does it wholeheartedly.
God has been so clear in his Word. Don’t worry over anything, He will take care of it. “ Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
