What Am I Going To Do?

Everyone at one time or another has felt hopeless, unsure of the future, fearful of what will happen next. These times can be brought on by any traumatizing event some of which may be the loss of a job; a terrible accident; or the loss of a spouse.

At these times many frantic thoughts flood our brain tumbling over and over each other … thoughts such as “What am I going to do?” or “How will I survive?” and possibly “What will happen to my family?” The possibilities are endless and often these thoughts race in with no real pattern or reason just seeming to wish to further exert and/or panic a mind that is overworked and tired already.

Often the immediate impact of these trying times and the realities that start to hit home relentlessly one after the next feed the already rising uncertainty we are now forced to realize and accept, and this frenzied state of mind can often make us forget the one true thing we have going for us during the trials we face … it is too often forgotten and shoved to the back as we think we must focus on only securing the immediate future before we can consider it.

What am I talking about? PRAYER! As it says in Philippians 4:19, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” When you remember to pray to our God and ask for His guidance and assistance, you can make it through anything! When we turn our burdens or troubles over to Him, He will always provide. We just need to have faith and be content as He does what needs to be done ... our frantic minds will be calmed and He will make available what we need.

Philippians 4:9-11 further shows us this as it states, “The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but lacked the opportunity. Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am to be content.”

Ask for the Lord’s help in times of need, trouble, or turmoil and be calm; be content to turn things over to Him, have faith, and let Him work as He will. Give Him the opportunity to show He cares and you will receive what you need. For it is true … the Lord DOES provide!

      Beautiful hub of His Truths. Yes, believe Him. "Seek first the Kingdom of God, and all these things will be granted to you." Matthew 6:33 Prayer is that direct communication with our Lord, who hears and answers. In His Love, Faith Reaper
