Controlling What We Can’t Control
Hey! Today I’m going to be talking about controlling what we can’t control. And with everything going on around us, this pandemic is causing us to go into a big anxiety-filled ball. And that’s not good!
1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety onto him because he cares for you.” We should realize the world isn’t going to run out of supplies, and do we really need 140 rolls of toilet paper? No, but the reason we believe this is a need, is because of anxiety. Satan is just rolling around laughing and putting these little thoughts into your mind like, “You need this,” or, “You better get it for yourself before someone else does” And THAT’S NOT TRUE!
What can we do to control our Anxiety? Here are some tips to help you, it’s what works for me.
1- Take a walk, Go Outside, while remaining social distancing, Just realize how beautiful the world is, and that how powerful God is.
2- Get off Social Media, because it’s ruining the brain, it brings negative messages.
3- Spend time with family, watch a movie, try and set a time to do that.
We see the world as “NEGATIVE” point of view, and that’s not true. We want to control what we cant do. we look at ourselves and ask why don’t I have that, or why do they have what I need. Stop, Be in thanksgiving, for what you have, others might think the same. It’s all in his control. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” Matthew 6:25.
Today, I challenge you to stop worrying about what you cant control even when you want to, cast your anxiety to prayer and thanksgiving. take some time to pray, go for a walk, even set down your phone, and watch a movie. Just remember that God has a full toll on what is happening, even if we forget that sometimes.
