“When you plan your life on the success of plans that are subject to people and circumstances, your life will be one long, emotional roller coaster ride.”
I read this in my morning devotional and it hit me hard. Like a ton of bricks. I am guilty of this. I have actually used the word “emotional roller coaster” to describe things I am going through. When I make plans for myself that depend on circumstances or other people in order to be successful, I am asking for trouble.
People aren’t perfect.
There is someone/something that is perfect and has never changed though: Christ and his love.
In order to get off this emotional roller coaster, one must walk by faith. Easier said (or typed) than done, I know. It’s a frightening thing to give up control over a situation and just walk by faith.
I am terrified of the unknown, and giving up something in favor of the unknown is paralyzing. Which brings me to a plug.
The church I attend, Cross Point Community Church, is starting a new series next week called “Paralyzed: Frozen by Fear”. (Check out the website and take a look at the promo video).
For me personally, this news could not have come at a better time. It is past time to stop making plans that rely on others to complete.
It is past time to give up the fear and become fearless.
