From Calamity to Calm

So many things to do
From planning on how to make them happen
To paying for them too
The build-up in my mind and body
Puts me on the verge of calamity
So I ask, God, why does everything fall on me?

And He answers me
You’d rather not have the capability to lead?
You’d rather not have resources others need?
Calm down and accept the responsibility
You make things worse by worrying

So once the calmness got into me, I started to change the way I think
Rather than complaining, I started thanking
Thanks Lord for my capabilities
Due to worry, sometimes trouble is not real, just perceived
And then thanks that You will help me deal with any thing
From calamity to calm You did bring.

Scripture Reference: Mark 4:37-41

Life can seem overwhelming sometimes when there is so much to do and you have to take the lead in seeing to it being done. It can also seem overbearing when many folks come to you for money. But would you rather not have money? Would you rather not have the mind and capability to lead people? What seems like a burden can actually be a blessing because God has thought so much of you, that He’s trusted you with resources and decisions. He will give you calmness and support when it is needed just like Jesus calmed the sea in Mark 37-41.
