Thought for Today

The Choice to Worry or Worship.

When we worry, we lay awake at night and ponder Satan's lies. When we worry, we have pity parties where the guests of honor are Negative Thinking, Doubt and Resignation.
But we can make the choice to worship. When we worship in these hard places, we are reminded that none of this is about us- it's all about God. We turn our focus off of ourselves and back onto God Almighty. God can use empty places in your life to draw your heart to Him. He is the Great Love of your life that will never disappoint.

We all worship something. We must choose whom or what- we will worship. Will it be the opinions of others, our fears or even our own comfort? Or will it be the One who created our souls to worship? Whatever we worship, we will obey. As we choose to be radically obedient and say yes to the Lord, we must be radical about choosing to worship Him and Him alone.

The result of choosing to worship Him, and Him alone is peace. Isaiah 48:18 says, " If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea."
