I can't complain. Life is great. I have a new baby, a loving husband and a cozy home. Juggling life can be hectic, but somewhere in the chaos I find peace.
But I haven't always.
I can remember in my early 20's having a never ceasing knot in my stomach. I was a worrier and I panicked- a lot! I never understood people who weren't moved by stress. I thought them to be lazy or unaware of the importance of having everything in place all of the time. Looking back, all of the things that I used to stress about just seem to always work out by the grace of God.
I'm learning the peace that comes from letting things flow and be. If I stay in communion with God, make known to him my praise and prayers everything has no choice but to be ok!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. -Philippians 4:6
So sip the cold coffee. Don't worry about how cold it is, how warm you wish it was. Shoot, throw some ice cubes in it! Enjoy the moment. You'll find that it's just as good now as it was earlier!
