First off, I want to give God all credit and praise for everything, because without Him showing me this message, I would be caught up in my own selfish ways. Over the past few years God has shown me so much, and it has been an amazing journey. BEFORE this message my relationship with my parents was far from ideal, and I was ready to get out from their authority. There were times I felt like they just didn’t understand what I was going through, so their advice never meant anything to me. When it came to school, I thought I knew where I was going to college and what I was going to pursue. Planning and controlling my future was something I felt security in, which ultimately gave me false hope. If that’s not enough, I’d worry about things--anything, EVERYTHING, at all times of the day! This worry consumed my life, and I never knew what to do when difficult situations fell in my lap. So I normally was a dramatic mess of emotions. NOW, everything has completely changed for the better, and I have a relationship with my parents! I love following my parents’ lead and getting under their godly authority. It’s always blessed!
They’ve sacrificed so much, and I am honored to take any opportunity to serve them. Following God’s lead everyday has allowed me to let go of control and worrying about everything. From this message I’ve learned that God is the one in control, and there’s no need to worry about anything
. Keep your focus on Him, and everything else will fall into place. After putting this into practice, my life is so peaceful
and full of joy with nothing to worry about or control. This life is so freeing
, and I never EVER want to go back to my old ways again!
