I lost my joy everytime I looked at my watch every 5 minutes. Needless to say, the rushing has definitely took my joy away and it gave me pointless stress. When I finally made it to the doctor’s clinic, I was surprised to find out that the doctor was more concerned about me being there and not missing the appointment than the fact I was late for half an hour.
This instance reminded me of how short sighted our human attitude is toward life, we forgot the important aspect of our journey through life. We get sidetracked by distractions and pointless worries during the journey instead of focussing on the real reason of the journey and actually making it there.
Let us fix our mind on our Lord’s acceptance of us regardless of whatsoever mistakes we have made and let us be determined to enjoy the journey of every trials. God is lovingly waiting for us and He promises perfect peace for those who trust in Him, not self-inflicted stress.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
