Do you know what’s often worse than bad things happening? It’s the fear of bad things happening. Sometimes we build up the gravity and horrendous nature of negative events that may happen in the future to the point that the fear is really the most damaging thing we face. Think about how the page usually turns and new chapters unfold after bad things happen in life. Are you seeing life through your lens or God’s lens?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)
Think about the “bad” stuff you’ve had happen to you in life. Did worrying about it make it better or worse? Despite the pain was there any positive to take from it? Whose perspective causes you to worry, yours or God’s.
If you want the best attitude and response to a blitz, think about the long term of your life and eternity. Remember to seek God’s perspective and understanding of that situation and what matters most. Declare to yourself and the world that, “I’m OK. God loves me and He’s in charge.” You may even want to shock the kids and go out for ice cream when the next blitz hits.
