Everything

This week I have spent a lot of time in prayer asking God to help me truly TRUST Him through this moving process. In fact, I've realized that I'm more of a worrier than I ever thought. And so, today as I was reading the bible, I came across a passage that hit me right between the eyes. In 2 Corinthians 6:8-10, Paul shares his experiences, "through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; HAVING NOTHING, YET POSSESSING EVERYTHING." (caps are mine) Wow! I have been focusing so much on my problems, that it's clouded me from seeing all of the blessings that are all around me. The truth is, I have so much to be thankful for. I have so many experiences to draw upon where God has provided and sustained me. Instead of worrying, I should be thanking Him for already providing the answers. "Thank you God for helping me to see that you are taking care of me, and that with you, I have everything!"

I know that He has never let me
down. I also know that not only do you have
"everything" but "everything" has already been done
and you just have to claim it and "walk" in it.
