Trying to look at things differently

I was listening to Joel Olsteen on TV, and he helped me realize that worrying and stressing doesn't change anything. We need to put our trust in God. 

None of this that is happening caught Him by surprise. He's knows exactly what we are going through. We just need to hold on and be strong. He will bring us through this. Stressing and worrying won't change anything. Life is a gift, we need to embrace each day and enjoy. Love our loved ones, show them how much we love them and enjoy life. Every day we spend worrying is a day we could have used to our benefit. God Bless each and everyone of you on this site! We may of understand the whys and why nots, but God is always on the throne. 

 

God Bless!

I do understand what you are saying.  One thing I've worked on with my counselor's help, is learning to appreciate and enjoy every day as it comes.  Trying not to anticipate the future is hard, but I don't want to regret missing out on the joys of every day I am able to spend with my family by dwelling on what might be.  It is a struggle but I'm learning to do it a little better every day.  It really makes me appreciate the positives in my life.
