Honestly, some days I get so wrapped up in things that are out of my control. I feel like I have no clear direction, no motivation, no control. I don’t know where to turn and even though my Christian training tells me that I am to turn to God, I’m not even sure how to do that when I face overwhelming circumstances. I got nothing. Which as it turns out is exactly where God wants me because when I “got nothing” that is when I solely rely on Him. He’s got my nothings covered because His word says that:
Nothing will ever happen to me that God does not already know about. –Psalm 139:1-4
Nothing will ever happen to me that is a mistake. –Psalm 139:4,16
Nothing will ever happen that I cannot handle by God’s power & grace. — 2 Corinth 1:9-10
Nothing will ever happen that will not eventually be used by God for some good purpose in my life. –Romans 8:28 and Nothing will ever happen to me without God’s presence. –Matt 28:20
As I study more about nothing, I realize that I should Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let my requests be made known to God.–Phil 4:6;
So, when I feel like “I got nothing,” I read those words and realize I have everything. My mood changes, my focus changes and I can get on with my day. I can look outward and attempt to do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;–Phil 2:3
It looks like I better look for ways to stop focusing on nothing and myself and start doing something for someone else! Maybe you should too.
