One of my FAVORITE places to be on the planet is swimming at 80 feet below the surface of the ocean. I’m always amazed at all the unbelievable “Alice in Wonderland-like” things that God created!
I don’t get to do it very often, so you’d think I would’ve relished the moment.
Instead…I got DISTRACTED!
I was worried that David wasn’t having a good time. I was concerned about our daughter-in-love, Morgan, who kept falling behind the rest of our group distracted by the beauty.
Then my mask started leaking a little, and my mind started rehearsing worst-case scenarios!“What if this happens? Will I still be ok?”
In the most beautiful, peaceful, and serene place on the Earth, I managed to lose my PEACE!
- When we lose our peace, nothing good EVER comes of it.
- We stop trusting God because we know the Creator of the Universe OBVIOUSLY needs our help sorting things out.
- We MISS seeing the blessings of God because we’re too distracted to notice the beauty that’s all around us.
The entire time that I was worried about other things, I didn’t notice any of the PHENOMENAL creatures under the sea!
They were there…WAITING.
God was there…just WANTING to be praised.
We can still care about others without TAKING ON their care. I can care that my stupid, cheap, rental mask is leaking, without starting a whole mental dialogue.
Protect your heart! Keep your peace and cast ALL YOUR CARES on Him because He cares for you!
Am I the ONLY ONE this has happened to? Don’t leave me out here alone. If it’s you too, give me an emoji!!!And what did you do about it?
