Happy Sunday Everyone!
It has been such a busy last couple of weeks for myself, between Graduating with my Bachelors Degree in August, to closing on my first home, I have been pulled in so many directions. Not complaining though, life works in amazing ways and often times the plan is better than we could have imagined. I am a very anxious person and if I have too many things on my plate, or “uncertainties” I will start to feel very overwhelmed. It has been absolutely vital to me to learn to go with flow, as well as rely on my faith.
In regards to learning how to go with the flow, I have been leaning not on my own understanding, but fully trusting the plan that God has for my life. I deal with things as they come, and see God works his way into each and every part of my crazy busy past month. Sometimes we are in such a rush to get to a finish line, that we do not stop to take time to enjoy the ride. I have been looking forward to my Graduation in August, but as I am now in my last class before I receive my degree, I have taken time to reflect on how blessed I am to obtain an education at a University.
This upcoming Saturday, I will be wedding dress shopping with the most amazing bridesmaids and mother that I could ask for, and the week following that I will be moving into my first home. There is a bible verse that comes to mind every time I feel like I have a million things on my plate.
Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.
If you are always worrying about tomorrow, like I sometimes find myself doing, you will always feel on edge and stressed. If you focus on being present in your current situation and trusting in the Lord, he will guide you through each and every day. Of course, that is not to say that every day if you trust God you will have a perfect day. I have had a lot of not so fun or “good” days, which served a bigger purpose in his plan for my life. Overall, it is so important to take time to realize what is truly important in life, not how many followers you have on social media, or what you look like… but truly celebrating each and every day for what it is.
I hope everyone has an amazing week and can learn to go with their own flow. Even if you are not a Christian or do not fully believe in trusting in God, know that there is a bigger plan for your life. One last note, my Fiance is constantly reminding me to “not sweat the small things”. I would have to say I have finally come to agree with him, and focusing on all the small little things can really drive me crazy. By not sweating the small things and letting go of the things you cannot control, you will find true happiness.
