James 1:6 “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind”. NIV
Don’t allow yourself to get blown and tossed by the winds of life. Oh my sometimes those winds in life will come and blow down on us real hard! Some days it feels like I am walking right into the middle of a hurricane or that life has become a tornado viciously determined to consume me! Yet, it is during these times that I must remind myself to believe God will never leave nor forsaken me! Also, it is during these times that I can’t allow myself to give up on my dreams or hopes. How can you say you really have hope for something if you have even the tiniest bit of doubt in your heart? You can’t! You can’t doubt the God-given dreams that live inside of you. They are yours to hold onto and pursue fervently. Pursuing life and pressing on in life takes a fire that you can’t afford to let die. I had a mind awakening experience this week in which I was in the hospital because not only was I sick with fever in my body, but my heart rate was higher than normal. The doctors were monitoring my pulse for hours before my heart rate stabilized back to normal. It was during those hours that I thought to myself what if I had not made it to the hospital in time and just sat around my apartment with my heart racing? I began to think to myself that if I continue down a path of worry I will eventually exhaust myself and cause my body to react in a very negative way. I don’t want to have a heart attack at a young age, but I realized while laying in that hospital bed that if I continue down this road o constant worry that is exactly what may happen. Then I began to ask myself, well if I am really giving it all to God then how did I just end up here? I came to the conclusion that in my prayers, I haven’t fully let go of my worries. Instead of relinquishing my worries to Christ, I am holding onto them like precious jewels. Yet those so called jewels are weighing me down. So I must let go in order to freely live or just live in general.
