on being anxious.



on being anxious.
i have mentioned in the last couple posts that life has gotten crazy.
probably not quite as crazy/busy as i think it is.
but i have been feeling pressured.
since getting engaged i have been feeling probably more pressured than i need to feel.
just simple questions like setting a date, where i am getting married, what my colors will be...etc., etc., etc.
and although i seem calm on the outside, my brain is spinning to find answers.
over the last few days i have finalized a few big things for my wedding.
but while i was figuring out those details my dad reminded me:
"take this slowly, if this is the right decision, than God already has it planned out to work.
if this is not what is best, there will be something better waiting.
my advice to others has always been:
"take a deep breath and just pray for a moment."
i need to take my own advice.
i need to take my dad's advice.
i am so so so excited for the big changes coming up in my life.
in the midst of my changes i know it may be hard to keep God first at times,
but it is worth it to not get so caught up in myself.
patience and my ability to trust in God are two things that i do catch myself forgetting at times.
being caught up in myself too much.
so i am mostly sharing this, as a reminder to myself.
be patient, and trust that everything will work out.
not just for my wedding, but for everything that comes my way.

"do not be anxious in anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God and let the peace of God guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:6-7

"humble yourselves, under the mighty hand of God so that he may lift you up in due time.  cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6-7

"be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" Romans 12:12

the point is not to get answers from God, 
but to strive for completeness and oneness with him.

thanks for stopping by today :)
