I believe that the days of our lives have changing soundtracks. The soundtrack matches your moment or season. I can’t tell you what your song sounds like but you know it when you hear it.
I was listening to my praise playlist as I do on my commute to uplift or change my frequency (I use this word to describe the current of negative emotions that happen in ones mind). My frequency was high this morning, a lot of static. None of the positive messages or affirmations that life usually give me were coming through. I could see the good and joy around me, I should have been thankful. But all I kept thinking was:
“Why me, When will this season end, When will I get my WIN God”?
That was my song title this morning, this was almost the soundtrack for my day…
And Yes, I ask God directly for those answers. So should you.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
But sometimes the answer is silent, sometimes it’s in progress, sometimes it’s some action we must take or sometimes it’s just not TIME. The last is the hardest to accept. In the midst of our meantime we must still give prayer with thanksgiving and living faith that whatever challenges you is already resolved under God’s command.
So when I begin my commute this morning I thought: When will it END and when will I WIN was the title track for my day. After I consciously decided to be thankful (you have to choose happiness), I began to experience the grace that was already surrounding me. I began to see God’s peace that transcended my own understanding.
Now, I don’t want you to think I found a bag of money or anything on my way to work. But I was reminded that the peace of God is irrevocable and already inside me. I want you to remember to look for that peace when everything seems to be falling apart. It surrounds us in tiny miracles all around us happening daily.
Be the best version of today yoU!
