Do you ever decide: it is in God’s hands, and not worry? Now I can do that for 15 minutes. Sometimes I can actually go a half day, but then Jack sets to figure out how I might help God. Since I know HE is busy, and may not have time to work on this specific problem right now.
Remember the Serenity Prayer? I have said it many times, that is probably the perfect prayer and attitude. I know it, BUT………….
Now I have to ask myself at times, what have you worried about and lost sleep over that did not work out? Nothing! So why do I still do it? Well I am gonna stop it! Worry has never done one lick of good. I don’t call it worrying, I am trying to find a way to fix something. After all I can fix about anything. Hahaha!
If people were like the old radios and TV’s when they did not work right, you give them a good smack and they straightened up. Sometimes I think that might work on folks. Hahahahaha
I just read a journal where a nephew went to see his old uncle. The uncle is 101 yrs old and still drives and lives by himself. Ken ask the question, “Uncle M. what is the secret, you have always seemed like a happy man?”
“Ken, I decided a long time ago that God is in control, and if he can’t work it out, ain’t no use in me trying. He don’t want me worrying about something I can’t fix.”
Ken said uncle M. closed his eyes took a deep breath and sorta shook himself, opened his eyes and said, “Everythang is gonna be all right!”
That had been the man’s mantra during his life; everything is going to be all right.
I have known folks who said they didn’t worry, but I could tell by their actions and things they said, that they actually did. I guess my mama came the closest to that of anyone and my brother Jr. seemed to not worry.
Now I’m gonna try, why don’t you try too? I guess really God doesn’t need my help, he seldom asks my advice. LOL
So I can’t change the weather or change someone’s minds, but God can, iffen he wants to. So say with me to help me, ‘EVERYTHANG IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT’.
Thanks for coming this way!
