Looking on Up

It’s 5:30 in the morning and I am wondering why am I wide awake and not asleep. My sleep is usually very sweet. So, I figured that it was time to start looking on Up. Alright God, maybe I am feeling a little anxious about today and its activities. Yet, You told me not to be anxious about anything. So, why am I feeling this way? Lord, please take away this anxiety. Sleep Body, Sleep.

Still awake. So, I might as well tell you about the origins of this anxiety in this body. Today at work, a meeting is going to take place that should not take place. It is interesting when others skip protocol and expect you to protect them at the same time. Life doesn’t work that way. One co-worker decided that she did not like how she was being treated by another individual and without giving management an opportunity to handle the matter, she skipped protocol and went above to discuss the matter directly with my employer. Today is their meeting. I am looking on up and trusting that God has already handled this situation. I’ve prayed, and no lengthy prayer either, since I know in whom I believe. Sometimes it’s just a matter of looking on Up and trusting that He has your back.

People can be incredible in their expectations. Before we make decisions in life, praying for wisdom should be the principal thing. Some people are born with it and others, like me, we have to seek it on a daily basis. Wisdom, I am seeking you right now for my daily dose. I need to know how to handle this situation. After all, you never know someone’s agenda and people lie all of the time. I have to have answers ready–if called upon.

I was telling my husband the other day that he has the gift of gab, he’s really quick on his feet. I wish I had his gift but I have to ponder things before I answer. He told me that this quickness came as a result of his hard life and having to fight for himself growing up. If that’s how he got the gift, I am pretty sure that I don’t want it that way. I’ll stick to looking on Up and praying for wisdom on a daily basis.

When you face situations in life and you don’t know what else to do, try looking on Up to the Master. After all, He knows the beginning from the ending and all of the scripted pages in between. I thank God for knowing Him as my personal friend, deliverer and Savior. I can always count on Him to be there to help me in my anxious moments.

And if I ever doubt His ability to give me solace in trying times, I just take a walk down memory lane and remember all of the times that He gave me His peace in the midst of all of my storms, trials and tribulations. Then, I rest assured in knowing that If He did it for me before, He will do for me again. Lord, I rest assured in knowing that You will make everything work out in my favor. No more anxiety. I am feeling sleepy now. Have a good night or morning everyone. See you soon. Zzzzzzzzz

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and caretaker, and I also work outside of the home. Life has its struggles but I am not complaining. It could always be worse. Many lessons learned on my journey and many more to come--I am sure. God has a sense of humor and I have certainly learned how to laugh at myself. You should too-it is quite therapeutic. After all, some things we cannot change so why not enjoy a good laugh at our own expense. See you soon.
