Accept what is, yet do what you can do!

6 "Aren't five sparrows sold for two pennies? But God does not forget even one of them. 7 In fact, he even counts every hair on your head! So don't be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows". (Luke 12:6-7)

I am going to take a break talking about discrimination today and focus on worry. In the above passage, Jesus is trying to tell the people that God will be there for them, if they would only have trust. Still, it is a common human condition to worry. However,there is only so much we can affect. What we cannot change, what we cannot influence no matter what, should not be a concern to us. This is what I notice with so many people, in that we focus and linger on things which we have no control over. Why worry about something that all the worrying in the world will not change? Why care about what other people think of us when we’re not even sure what it is they are actually thinking? Once you open the blinds to this fact, and start accepting what is that you cannot change, you automatically relieve yourself of a mountain of stress and anxiety. It’s like a huge weight has been lifted from your shoulders. Taking this path is following a road towards peace.
Give up your trouble, worry and anxiety to God. However, don't try to take it back when God does not move fast enough for us.
I think that when you have an opportunity to affect change, you should take that opportunity. You should speak out against wrongdoing. Do help those that are put in your path to help.
That may seem to contradict what I wrote about worring. That is the difference between worring and doing. Do what you can and let God take care of the rest.

Love and prayers,


"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
