Day 74- Palm Beach Gardens, Florida: Turning it Over to God
During a tornado there is so much turbulence and destruction for everything that is in the path of this unexpected storm that is similar to our lives at many intersections along our journey. When we are faced with decisions that are uncomfortable for us as humans and we are torn about making the right decision we have two choices, either turn it over to God or not. If we choose to turn it over to God it will work out eventually and all of our fears will be washed away. However, if we do not allow Jesus to take the situation over, we will fall down or stumble through the moment as we are constantly trying to fix our mistakes along the way as well.
We are not perfect and God wants us to be happy. How do we balance that in our minds? How do we allow others to come into our lives to either help or hinder us along our way? Do we build trust with people who we know may let us down? Do we put our faith in people or God? It is ok to build relationships that are healthy and that also allow Jesus to enter into the picture as a union, but we have to be mindful if the relationship is productive or not. With that being said, we cannot allow others to infiltrate our hearts and mind to interrupt the love we have for God in any situation.
We are taught in Matthew the following, “”If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire. If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into the fiery hell”. We cannot allow anyone to separate us from God, and we especially cannot let our individual actions destroy our soul along the way. We have to completely trust God and turn every turbulent situation in our lives over to God, for His love will reign forever and ever over us.
