I watched 500 Days of Summer again and it was so much more relevant. I basically in a nutshell realised that sometimes somebody can be your summer and your everything but you were just their winter or autumn or just somebody leading them to the next great thing. It’s definitely one of my favourite movies and I also concluded that without even realising it I’m waiting for my autumn. Yes summer is the season of blissfulness and fruitfulness and sunshine but sometimes one needs autumn to properly heal and for all the beautiful leaves that hurt you more than brought you happiness to fall away. I guess love is a whole cycle, you can never truly find summer again without autumn and winter. I want to find summer again and so I’m waiting for autumn.
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you (1 Peter 5:7, NLT.)
God desires to take care of whatever may be concerning you today. He invites you to give your worries and cares to Him simply because He loves you!
How do you give Him your cares? First of all, understand that cares show up in your mind. When negative, self-defeating thoughts of worry come, you have to recognize them as cares and replace them with the Word of God. For example, if you are concerned about a need today, say out loud, “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.” If you have fear about something, say out loud, “God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” If you have sickness in your body, declare, “By His stripes I am healed.” As you meditate on the truth and focus your heart and mind on the Father, those cares and concerns will disappear.
Then, thank Him for giving you peace and joy. Thank Him for working in your life. As you keep an attitude of faith and expectancy, give Him your worries and cares and get ready for the blessing He has for your future!
I’ve had so many knives stuck into me, when they hand me a flower I can’t quite make out what it is. It takes time.
