This is just something I wrote in my blog I thought I'd share. It's solely written from my thoughts and experiences and as always, take from it what you can use and leave the rest. :)

Enjoy the Ride

So I was laying in bed last night thinking about how great the day was and how good things are going for me right now. I mean, it feels like I'm riding this incredible ocean wave high above the problems and turmoil that engulfed me the past few years. No sooner did I have that picture in my head before another one emerged. It was one of fear and terror...Wipeout! My heart pounded wildly. I began to sweat. And the more I tried to stop the anxiety attack, the stronger it grew. My mind played the game of 'what if' it knows so well. What if someone else dies....What if I become seriously ill...What if this is all too good to last? What if this wave comes crashing down? As I cried out to God to give me peace, three words came into my head that I know were not my own...Enjoy the ride.

"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" ~ Matthew 6:27 (NIV)

If worrying about tomorrow zaps all of the joy out of today then what's the point? Why do I worry about things I don't have any control over anyway? God wants us to live in the moment, to enjoy each day as it comes and trust Him with our tomorrows. This is faith. This is strength. This is peace.

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." ~ Matthew 6:34 (The Message)

"The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day." ~ Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT)

I have been having similar thoughts. Things are actually going well for me at work, better than they ever have, and I feel like I am waiting for something to go wrong. I am glad things are going well for you, and thanks for sharing that!

Thank you for sharing such wonderful thoughts. These are really inspirational and peaceful.

Once I also wrote an article on worry while explaining the meaning of Bhagvad gita, the ancient Indian religious text. The whole world is nothing but a cosmic play of God and no matter how hard we try to control it, nothing actually is in our control.

You may read that article here:
