Have you ever tried to be bigger than God? Before you fly off the handle and yell NO!!! at the computer screen just STOP lying. Because your not perfect. Think about it. Sometimes we take all of our problems on and never think about God. This week I figured somethings out. We rely on stress and worry and not God.
First, lets talk a little about the STRESS factor. Thanks to Francis Chan's book Crazy Love, God's convicting power has rocked my world this week. "Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or out tight grip of control." Is impatience your best-worst quality? It is mine. I cannot wait to finish this blog because I am I need to proof read it. See what I mean. I want everything I do in my timing not in God's. I know what you are thinking, "Kris how can you say that." I might of said it, but your actions show that you are the exact same way. Do you not think it is funny that we are guilty of over half of the things we judge others for. Now I know what you are thinking "Kris you Judge others" see what I mean you are doing it again. I was watching the biggest loser the other day, they was playing a game and if they lose then they had to eat high calorie food. As they ate the cookies, doughnut, peanut butter and Jelly, apple pies, and bagels, I was saying "that is nasty." When I have easily ate that many calories before and loved it. I blows my stinking mind that when we see others sin it is easy to judge, but we are blinded my our own excuses. Now back to stress, it is a SIN. In my life and yours. I am a sinner. Thank God for His grace. You can ask Jessi, this last 2 or 3 weeks I have stressed so much I have made myself sick literally with Stress and worry. God has brought me to my knees begging for forgiveness.
Worry is another of my many sins and another way I do not trust God. Stress and Worry go hand in hand. Chan wrote, "worry implies that we don't quite trust that God is big enough, Powerful enough, or loving enough to take care of what's happening in our lives." This basically speaks for it's self.
HOW BIG IS GOD?? Well, guess what? He is bigger than you let Him be! God is not limited by your faith in the world. However, your lack of faith limits you from showing God that He is your World. I will end this Blog with some encouraging words that my wife tells me, when I stress and worry. JUST STOP IT.
Because of Him,
BTW, I am sorry about not blogging lately. I was not trusting in God's power and I was to stressed and worried. SEE I AM A SINNER!!
