When worries come..

Honestly worried about so many things. 

The incoming typhoon that might send another flood into our house, the upcoming bills, my work, and... my work.

The past year has been a real roller coaster ride for me. I've been in the same company in the past seven years, I didn't realize what's in store for me outside until I'm already, well, out.

I want to regret the wasted times.
I want to regret the decision I made.
I want to blame people.

But I know I shouldn't. No use regretting the past. No use pointing fingers. No use being bitter.

God's word for me today is very encouraging and very calming. Inline image 1

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen;
it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
- Hebrews 11:1

Faith is truly the antidote for worrying. I don't know how things will work out but I know that God has got my back. Not only does he got me, but He also knows what I want and what I hope for.. what my heart truly desires and long for. 

When I first read the verse, I told myself.. "but this is just for our Hope that we will someday go to Heaven."

And then I read the next verse..

It was by faith that even Sarah was able to have a child,
though she was barren and was too old.
She believed that God would keep his promise. - Hebrews 1:11

I knew it was God's answer to me. He whispered to me, that He cares even to the most secret desires of our heart, even to our practical desires our material wants and needs. God cares, he understands and he keeps his promise.

God doesn't just care about "spiritual" stuff, He is concerned also with "earthly" worries -- my bills, the new clothes I want, my dream of getting a new house, stability in my career.

He cares.

He took me back to the story of Sarah in Genesis, and asked me the same question..

Is anything too hard for the LORD? - Genesis 18:14

And in my heart, I know the answer is true. Nothing, Lord. Nothing.
