Reflections

Reflection, Sam Tanas - Elder

At the beginning of this year, I was filled with anxiety and worried about many things. This worry eventually turned into fear, which resulted in constant feelings of anger. I even started to worry about the fact that I was worried and then I asked myself where I was at in my relationship with God. I remembered the story of a time when Jesus was in his friends’ house to eat and to spend time with them but rather than taking time to enjoy his presence Martha was consumed with worry. (Luke 10:41)This was because she forgot that only one thing truly matters and that is "sitting at the feet of Jesus”. When we are overcome with worry, we often do what Martha did. We lose sight of the only thing that’s important, ”sitting at the feet of Jesus". When we’re not at the foot of the cross, we'll feel that we've lost control of our life and plans. But the real problem is not that we’ve lost control, it’s that we've forgotten we were never meant to be in control in the first place. When I am in the presence of God, He reminds me that He is in control and His plan is always much better than mine. When we put our trust in God, He will take care of us when we can't take care of ourselves. (Philippians 4:6 & 1 Peter 5:7)

At the beginning of every year it’s “New Year’s Resolution” time. Did you make one? Sometimes I declare one specific thing, other times I use the new year to say, “This is the year!” Resolutions are awesome.  But here’s something to think about....I’m thankful for a new year that God has given us— full of opportunities and possibilities! But he also gives us new days, new tasks, new hours, new meals, new seasons, new minutes, new schools, new seconds.  We have new opportunities everyday all around us to make the changes in us and in our lives that we are wanting to make. We also have the Holy Spirit who guides us and helps along the way. Let this year, this day, this hour, be the one you declare over your life—“I can do it!” “I can do all things through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
