OTS by Jess: Day Fourteen

“There they are in great fear, For God is with the generation of the righteous.” -Psalms 14:5

I spent the last two days being frustrated and bitter. And the one thing I learned looking back at those two days, was that it was not worth it. In fact, complaining about things really just made me more upset. One thing that my boyfriend is really good at, is getting over something.

This is something I am learning.

I used to be someone who was great at rolling with the punches. But then I realized that I was sacrificing too much of myself doing that. Another thing my boyfriend pointed out to me. Can you see why I love him?

Ultimately, I am learning to take things as they come, give them thought, and then act. It’s a tough balance. I know what I want in life and I’m very blessed that it is also what I have been called to do. Therefore that, and that alone, is what I should be doing. Nothing should stand in the way. There is a verse in the Bible that says, “if God is for us, then who can be against us.” God is most definitely for us. And no one can be against us.

Not even ourselves.

Whether we’re beating ourselves up, or even dwelling too long on something that has happened. It is so not worth the time. It’s vanity and grasping for the wind. I am so excited for the future, both near and far, and I’m not willing to compromise any of it. Unfortunately, wasting my time on petty things, is doing just that.

Last week was not an easy week, but I’m ready for week three. So be fearful, because the Lord is with me.
