Over the past year and a half I can think of three times where I heard something that was predicted to happen at a certain time and it made my heart tremble uncontrollably. It caused upheaval of my soul and I even lost sleep due to worry and fear.
But guess what? None of those things has happened. At least not in the timeline that was given.
I wasted my time and energy and lost sleep over nothing. Literally.
This frog 🐸 was sitting on our little bridge this morning. He sat there so still. Like he was waiting for something.
Made me think of myself and how tempting it can be to just…sit and wait for the inevitable “shoe to drop”.
But we are to be busy with the good works God has prepared for us (Ephesians 2:10). There is no exception clause that encourages us to hunker down and do nothing when we think we see the end in sight.
Oh, how I so desire that my time and energy is spent on these good works prepared for me instead of wasting them on worry and fear.
Life is so short. Like the one-page introduction in the sweeping novel that is eternity. Oh, to keep this in mind as we sojourn here on earth.
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him”
I Corinthians 2:9
