Learn to Take Life As It Comes

Day 103 of 365 [April 13, 2015]

Like most people, I resist things I don’t like that I can’t really do anything about. One day the Lord said to me, ‘Joyce, learn to take life as it comes.’

I believe this is a lesson for all of us. What He was saying to me was that I needed to stop fighting the things I could do nothing about.

If we are traveling somewhere and suddenly find ourselves in heavy traffic due to an accident or bad weather, it doesn’t do any good to resist it. Only time or God’s supernatural intervention will change the situation. Why not relax and try to find some way to enjoy the time?

God has equipped us to handle life as it comes, which is why He tells us to only focus on today. He knows that if we spend time worrying about issues beyond our control, we will become tired and frustrated.

You don’t need to waste time trying to change and control things outside your power. Set your mind to what God has placed in front of you and let Him take care of the rest.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I realize that I can’t control everything, but I can trust You. Right now, I make a decision do my best with what You’ve given me and leave the rest to You.

Matthew 6:34 ESV

34Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
