Have you ever felt overwhelmed?
Today, after running a few errands, I was on my computer and stumbled across an article that was talking about how my generation is really in a losing battle financially. It talked about how fewer and fewer young couples are having kids because it is not financially possible (a reality I know all too well), how owning a home is pretty implausible and how many jobs around today will be gone in a few years making the already scarce job market even more cut throat. Needless to say, it wasn’t a very uplifting piece.
And I began to doubt myself. Did I make the right decisions in my life? Should I have don’t things differently? What is my life going to be like?
Then this song came on my Spotify:
“What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning on the everlasting arms.”
I have nothing to fear. Jesus says who can add a single thing to their life by worrying? Maybe I won’t have a kid for a while even though I’d like one. Maybe I won’t have one at all. Maybe I won’t own a house. As long as I am leaning on the everlasting arms of Jesus I will be okay.
