No More S.T.R.E.S.S.

I don’t know about you but, I want everything in my life to be as fine as frog hair. However, when I experience thermal turbulence or receive an unpleasant circumstance, I don’t rest until it’s fixed. Those of you that ‘know-know’ me; know that I am dead serious! I am a fixer and a problem solver but when my energy, influence, tenacity, and fortitude fail to find an immediate resolution I become extremely uncomfortable. I have learned, circumstances can easily rule our emotions! But God doesn’t want us to be at the mercy of our emotions, life events or the hopeless perspective we sometimes foster about them. Fact is, we can horizontally rise above our circumstances by viewing them through vertical lens. In Daniel 3:16-17 just before King Nebuchadnezzar was about to throw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into a burning furnace, they told the king, “We have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us out of your hand.” On God, you would think in order for these boys to possess this level of resolve they FaceTime God just before they where summoned! Well, we know that didn’t happen but we do know they made a cognizant decision to trust God despite the consequences. God knows the end from the beginning and vice versa. Therefore, we can trust that He will always take care of us. And when we do, our problems can be seen as non-threaten turbulence on the way to ‘destination peace’!!It’s your choice. No matter the hardship of changing old habits, you can choose to look beyond unwelcome circumstances and leave the consequences to God!
