Today, I felt something that i have not felt in a very long time. This morning, i felt anxious. Feeling anxious is something i battled with for a very long time. As i grew older and my faith in Christ grew as well, the space were being anxious resided was replaced by the grace of God. This morning (and last night), i found my heart racing a little faster and i even had a “gagging” reflex. It was scarry in that being anxious is something i do not want to live in again.
As i contemplate why i feel like this, i realize that i have gotten a little to comfortable with life here on earth. Being comfortable meant less time reading the word of God and talking to God. Worrying comes when you do not remember that God is with you. For just a split second, i forgot that and it was eating me inside.

Lately, I have been on a TobyMac steak here. The quotes coming from them are just fitting for what we as Christians are going through on a day to day basis.
Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is an uncertain future, yet we have today. Dont waste today and put off something that God may be placing in your heart. Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. Share the word of God to others. Be compassionate and forgiving. Love as Jesus loved you. We can never make up for the past…lets make sure the current is where we live and where we let our actions speak. Have a blessed day everyone. PJSLB
Yes, it is okay to lose your cool; keeping in mind that you are human. You were not meant to be prfect (but human) and our God does not expect such. What is expected is that you relize your faults and “move on.” The mistake is not being mad but staying mad. PJSLB
Even now, I have family and friends that question what I am doing with my life. They call my work and actions “wasteful” and lazy. I should be working at Wall Street making that money. What they don’t understand is that I am at the exact place I am suppose to be. This is what I am called to do. Money comes and goes but knowing that you are living a purposeful life is eternal.
IF God places something in your heart just know that many will not understand. They may not understand but you do.
Have a great day. PJSLB
