What if i mess it all up?
What if some drastic change happens, like last year?
What if I realize some great truth that I've been missing out on for fifteen years?
What if my sixteenth birthday party isn't what I expect?
What if I don't mature?
What if I do mature? Will life ever be the same?
What if... and I am sure you can fill in whatever your anxiety is.
You've probably seen where I've gone wrong. First off, every one of the above questions started with "What if..." I was just building off of an assumption! And secondly, I was getting all worked up about it!!!
Hmmm... I'm spotting another area for improvement. A certain verse comes to mind:
"Casting all your care upon him, for he cares for you."
Yeah, that verse kinda says it all. I don't have to be anxious about the year coming up. Because HE knows what lies ahead, and He cares for me. That means I don't have to worry. It's a circle, see? A wonderful circle of comfort that takes a load off my and your shoulders. Take your anxiety to God! There's really no reason to be worried about this next year when you're close to a Guy like Him.
