Britney’s Song

Hello everybody, welcome back.

Today’s episode is called”

“Britney’s Song”

Now I know that sounds like a really hipster kind of blog title where I now tell a story about a girl called Britney who lived a tragic life, and found solace in writing a song that will touch all of you when you read the lyrics. I wish!!! In fact the Britney I am talking about is Britney Spears, which does fit the first part; but the song is “Oops I did it again” whose lyrics should never be read intentionally.

I bring this up because I was faced with a situation and a challenge that I have faced in some way or form before, and yet I still reacted in a way that I really really didn’t want to do but I still did. I worried :(

Now to my credit I didn’t worry at the start, but when 2 weeks had passed and I was supposed to have a resolution with a dealing with a third party in 5 days; I started to get a little bit ancy. Another week later with no updates the heat was turned up. The worst part was my contact wasn’t returning any of my calls and when he did I missed it and then he wouldn’t answer for the next 3 days. Finally I was told a resolution would be sorted in 5 days. 10 days later I am ready to explode. I am ready to complain, go over my contacts head and demand a resolution. I worry everything has gone wrong and I won’t be able to find a solution but I really have no other option as they have wasted 5 weeks of my time. Just at the point where I am about to lose it I get a call and all is finalised and sorted. Oh.

Matthew 6:25-27

“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

Worry is such a stupid past time but still it is like trying to kick an addiction. It takes time, patience and many failed attempts where you get a little bit better each time. To tell the truth I did get better this time. I generally wasn’t worried at the start or even after a few weeks. A lot of the time I stopped myself worrying reminding myself that God is in control and he loves me more than birds. Sure the worry came back and I wasted time with that, checking and rechecking my emails hoping for any updates in the last 1.16 seconds.

So I am getting better and I am striving to get myself to a place where I am 100% confident God is in control no matter what life throws my way. How long will that take me? I am not sure…… but I am not worried about that.

Have Fun

Dan.
