We were meant to be in joy – not fear. I mean really, what kind of God would want His creations to live in fear?
What if you could go through just one day and not fear anything? I think we don’t even realize sometimes the little fears, the tolerations, the nagging thoughts that take our joy away on a daily basis. You know, the ones that say “what if?” What if she doesn’t like me? What if I don’t get that promotion? What if I can’t pay my bills? What if I make a mistake? What if I don’t remember my lines? What if something happens to someone I love?
Wow! I think we all drive ourselves crazy with these negative what if’s. So what if we could have one day … just one day when we don’t allow the negatives to master our time and rent space in our heads?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to pick one day in the near future … maybe before 2011 ends and 2012 begins and be determined to eliminate any negative what if’s. They will show up, but when they do, turn them into a positive. For example, “what if it turns out that she likes me” or “what if I do get that promotion?” or “what if it all goes really well?”
I’ll leave comments open for a while so that you can let us know how it went for you and how you felt about living your day this way.
