Matters that matter
I am in the process of training myself to focus on matters that really matter.
A lot of times I find myself majoring on things that do not necessitate my attention. I tend to worry over things that I actually do not have control of. This behavior, when continued, can actually lead to depression and poor decision making.
Thankfully, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Things change, your decisions change, your choices shift from bad to better, from good to best. This is where I start my journey all over again.
I choose to believe in God's promises of healing instead of focusing on the symptoms, trying to find out every bits and pieces of information that I can gather regarding my illness. I refrain from basing my health on what and how I feel, but seriously meditating on the passages in the bible that talks about how God has already healed me.
I believe and rejoice at the same time that God will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus ( Philippians 4:19) instead of constantly worrying about my daily sustenance;
I focus on His promise that I will be the head and not the tail, the lender and not the borrower, that I am above and never beneath regardless of what my circumstance tells me;
I rehearse my victories instead of thinking that I might fail or listen when people say I am a failure and that I do not amount to anything.
I medidate on God being my Shepherd and therefore I shall not want, rather than wanting things that are actually empty.
With my training, though, I need to focus and shut my ears from the world's dictates. My day starts and ends with His assurance, and it is a conscious decision that I have to make every day.
God is faithful. When He says one thing, He means it and it will happen. I receive his grace, favor, blessings everyday...unconditionally, unceasingly, unlimitedly, so thank you, God.
