Hola mis amigos! I hope you are all doing well. I have been keeping busy with Finals and my fast approaching internship but anyways I have got some good news for you today. Are you ready for it? Ok, here it is; RELAX.
Is that not good news that we can all just relax and trust that God has us? Trusting God is sometimes easier said than done but nonetheless it's essential to our success in life. If we go through life afraid or feeling like we are incapable of getting things done then we never will get things done.
I was recently on the road with my dad and the route we needed to take was congested with a lot of traffic. So my dad, being the human GPS that he is, suggested we take a back country road. Mind you by this time it is 8 pm at night but I think nothing of it and volunteer to drive us home, which was about 45 minutes away.
About 10 minutes into the drive we finally make it to the back road. If you live in Texas or the south then you know the back roads are PITCH BLACK at night and sometimes winding. I could feel my body tense up and my eyes begin to widen as the road began to wind . I was starting to get frightened as we traveled on the two lane road. Cars with bright lights were speeding around curves and 18- wheelers rushed past me going the opposite direction. Like I said before, I was scared and I was even about to pull over and ask my dad to drive.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go”
When the thought came to my mind to pull over an even louder thought came to me saying “you can do this.” I know it was the voice of God empowering me and reassuring of me my ability to get us to our destination safely.
As soon as I got home I heard the Holy Spirit say “just relax.” You see that trip home was parallel to life. On the journey we may feel like we can not do what our Father has asked us to do but we absolutely can. We have been empowered and equipped by the Holy Spirit and our life experiences to do what God has destined us to do.
Comment below some of your thought on trusting God!
