When we start listening to the “What ifs” we often allow our fears to take over causing us to stay right where we are. You see, once we let our brains take over it becomes difficult to see that our situation is just temporary and can be overcome. In turn our anxiety and fear increases making it more difficult to deal with the situation and see a solution. In time it may cause us to lose hope allowing depression to creep in. But the great news is, we were created for greatness. So, when we give the “What ifs” to our creator and begin focusing on what we can/will do we will overcome and accomplish remarkable things.
We have choices daily. Stay stuck and never begin anything new because what if I fail? What if I try this new diet and I do not lose any weight? What if people make fun of me? What if? This list can go on and on.
Life is messy and we have a choice to let it overwhelm our spirit and take us to dark places or to overcome it with the help of God who gives us hope, strength and guidance. Regardless of what we face our Lord is there to guide us through and give us a great life.
