Tonight I had a choice

Spread the love

Tonight before quartet practice, I had very stressful moments, filled with confusion, anxiety, and frustration. That was affecting my nerves as I drove to rehearsal. I kept confessing that anxiety to the Lord as I drove. Finally, I decided I wasn’t going to allow that to continue. I decided and said out loud “I am going to be calm.” The feeling were still there, but they were less and less. Then I chose to think about more important things, like what I have and how God is in control. Then after playing the music and looking at the words, I was reminded of the Lord’s faithfulness to me – to us all. If it were not for these decisions, I would still be stuck in self-pity and just general self … everything. The choices we make do make a difference. The feelings will come later.

  1. Joshua 1:5 ESV

    No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.

    What a promise God gave Joshua! No matter our feelings or circumstances, if we carry Him inside us then that same promise is ours as well!

  2. Amen! That’s victory…To God be the glory! I try so often to do that but often fall short. I go to my own feelings and emotions instead of to the Throne!

    1. That’s it, Jill. When we go to our own feelings instead of to the throne, we always miss out. I was venting pretty good last night, trying to get it out of my system. I wish the refocus was instant. 🙂 Okay, Lord, we apparently need to work on patience! Anyway, have a blessed weekend.
