don't worry. everything is going to be amazing.

{source: unknown via: we heart it}

It must be the planner in me. The part of me that has always wanted to know what was going to happen tomorrow, and write out all the details. As early as I can remember I have been this way. I used to sit down at the kitchen table, ask my mom what the plan was for the day, and write it all out on my crayon and construction paper calendar.

Sure, planning is good. It has helped me be prepared for things. It has helped me be organized. But, in my 23 years of life I have come to discover that this need for planning has also caused me to worry. And worrying is blech.

Alongside the worry that threatens to creep in during moments of doubt or vulnerability, I also have this faith. This faith in Someone who is much bigger than me that assures me everything is going to be amazing.

It's a day to day struggle for me. This struggle between faith and worry.

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." - Matthew 6:34 (The Message)

Everything is going to be amazing. :)


  1. This is so very good! I am inspired by your "Everything is going to be amazing" attitude.

  2. Good scripture! I also like this one: "41"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, 42but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her." Luke 10:41-42 I have to keep reminding myself to not be worried and upset about many things but to concentrate on the ONE THING that is needed - my relationship with God! I think this is something all women struggle with so you are definitely not alone girlie. You have such a great attitude! :-)

  3. SO TRUE! us planners have to stick together to make sure that we dont forget to faith in Him who is always looking out for us.

    i have come to learn that even tears and the inevitable stress can "be amazing"
