I was listening to a message on dreams, when the speaker said something that struck a cord with me. he said that doubt is a natural part of your faith. But when you doubt or worry about things, where do you go? Do you move towards faith or do you move towards fear?
I have always been a worrier. And I have always heard that I shouldn’t worry, that God will provide. i have always felt like worrying was a sin, but it is just a normal routine of mine and I haven’t been able to overcome it (probably, because I’m trying to do it on my own). But this guy made it sound different…. It’s not that worrying is a sin in itself. It’s when I let my worries turn into faithlessness, when I start to believe them, when I let them overcome me instead of believing God can overcome them.
It’s one of those things that you know… except someone puts a little different spin on it and all of a sudden, it makes absolute sense.
Please pray for me. I am a worrier by nature. I need to remember to turn things to God and trust him to provide… like when my car didn’t want to start this morning….
