Turning around negativity
Since hearing the news that we are possibly moving to Korea, we have been doing all the paperwork to start the process. I went to the doctors last week for a physical, and I am happy to say that there were no problems. It makes me so excited! I know that seems silly, but I'm so grateful. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It also made me realize something, I'm a really negative person. I had been expecting really bad news. I realize that I seem to expect the worst in situations. Instead of praying or giving it to God, I prepare myself for bad news. When everything turned out fine, I felt really silly. But today I know what kind of person I want to be. I don't want to worry about life. I am reminded of Luke 12:25, that says we can't change anything by worrying. Worry won't make you healthy, it won't make your problems go away, and it certainly can't change anything. Only God is able to change your circumstances. So I have resolved to give things to God, even in the most difficult of circumstances. I don't want to be a negative person, or a person who complains and worries about every situation. It can be exhausting to be around people who you have to reassure all of the time that everything is going to be okay, and I don't want to be that way. I want to encourage and uplift. I want to overflow with thanksgiving for all that Christ has done, and I want to express that to others. I feel really great spiritually, for the first time in a very long time. I'm excited to see what God does next!
