DON'T FEED THE DISTRACTION


Many times in life, we worry about that next best thing or the solution to that problem that keeps us up at night. There's definitely always something to worry about.

Then you read your bible or go to church or hear the optimistic ones say "Don't worry about it, things will work out". In your mind, you're like 'yea if only it were that easy'. But it is...it's just that easy. It's all about perception.

Don't feed the distraction. Don't feed that lay off, that interview, the economy, that ex, that future relationship, that marriage or that illness. Whatever you feed right now is what you will harvest in the future. If you feed your worries, you'll harvest more worries

Instead, focus on God...pray, do your part and be PATIENT. Focus on improving yourself and others. Don't ever think for once that God doesn't see you or isn't eager to bless you. After all, you are his child. If it hurts your biological father to see you struggle then imagine how God feels.

But the good news is that God can actually do something about it. No matter how big that dream is, he's willing and able to bring it to pass. He will even do more than that. You just have to trust in his plan. You never know, that job that seems like a do or die affair might just be less than what he has planned for you.

I lost my job recently and people see me smile and I can just tell that they try to read meaning to my smile. It's almost like they want to ask why I'm handling it so well. Frankly in the past two months, I've had only one week where I felt really sad and 'jobless' but the other weeks have been great.

When I think back, what made me sad was the fact that I took my eyes off God. I began to worry and the thought of making adjustments to my lifestyle made me very unhappy but then I remembered God. The God that took me through the university, through my life in Toronto, through my internships, through my first corporate job, through terrible moments that I can't even begin to explain. I remember that God and I realize that it has never been by my power or might but his mercies.
Matthew 6: 
7 "And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words."
8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him."
