As I wait for Boris to make his latest announcement. Reporters speculating and getting as many conflicting opinions as possible, I find my anger rising, bringing anxiety.
Why am I letting this get to me? The weekly bible verse for this week in my newly started 2021 prayer journal is the verse from James at the top.
I need to be quick to listen and slow to anger. Boris hasn’t even made his announcement yet and I am getting angry and certainly not listening to what is the truth as the truth has not been spoken yet. It is all speculation.
As I wait and calm down and think of everything in world that feels unjust, I realise I am not running the race for this world.
I don’t want my prize in this world. I want eternity with Jesus. My goal, my prize.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.Philippians 3:14
It is time to refocus my ears, heart and eyes on Jesus and nothing else. Jesus is still my love, protection, provision and hope. However bleak it feels, whatever the government say.
Jesus is still my hope.
Jesus you are my hope
In the darkness of days
Whether the sun is shining
Or if it's snowing outside
Lord take my anger as it is not of you
It won't change what is going on
It will only take away my joy
Fill me with anxiety
Keep my eyes on you Jesus
You are my goal
Eternity in heaven with you
The only prize I need
