How come it is so easy for us to get stuck in the what if’s of life. Why does constantly getting stuck in the what if’s cause so much anxiety and stress? I’ve noticed a lot lately that my focus has been in other places rather than focused on God because I’m so stuck in the what if’s. God says in Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you;” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” I’ve been constantly reminding myself of this verse trying to keep my mind off of the what if’s that have been plaguing my mind. I’m struggling with really giving everything up to God and trusting in his plan because like it says in Jeremiah he knows the plan that he has for us. Why is it so hard for us to trust in God when we find ourselves struggling with our circumstances? God is there for us through all of the hard times and uses them to help us persevere.
God leads us to what he wants us to do most and trusting him to guide us through the hardships. In those times instead of falling into the what if’s it is important to stop and pray. God knows what we need before we even ask for it and remembering that before we get stuck in the habit of questioning god is important.
