All We Can Do Is Give Our Worries To God

“I do have faith, and I owe that to God.”

All We Can Do Is Give Our Worries To God

I've read so many articles.

I have turned to so many news sources.

I've stayed up late at night watching YouTube videos from other countries showing me how bad it is and how bad it could get.

I have read all the sad Facebook posts and even wrote a few.

I've called friends crying, and sat through family dinners that were spent talking about what our world may crumble to.

As I'm sure you could probably imagine-none of this helped me. In fact, it made my anxiety worse than it ever has been before. The one thing I failed to do from the beginning-that I promised myself I would not go another day without-is praying.

You see, this pandemic is scary. We all know that, and if we don't, there are a million outlets in the world reminding us. The thing is, NONE of those outlets can tell us anything that God doesn't already know. Why trust more in the news than we do our God? God literally has already seen the end to this pandemic. If we can trust enough in him, and give our anxiety, worries, and fears over to him, it's doing more for us than any "informative" outlet can provide us with.

I understand not everyone has faith, and though I truly support anyone's beliefs and decisions they make in life, I can not begin to tell you how beneficial life has been since I started to confine in God and give the burdens I face daily to him. Just saying it out loud and feeling the presence of someone listening is comfort in itself. When I tell God that I KNOW he will show our world peace after the virus, I believe it. When I pray to protect the people I love, I feel it. And when I tell God that I trust EVERYTHING he does, I mean it. I have never felt more faith in my life than I do right now. Even with as scary as our world has become, it has managed to shed this huge light of faith in me I didn't realize I even had.

So what now?

I continue to pray.

I know that no matter how long this takes, there is a reason for what is happening. Even though there is confusion and nerves centered around this sickness, all of my faith goes towards God and the hopes for an even stronger world one day.

I had someone say to me recently- "If God is so great and real, why would he let this sickness continue to spread and kill people?"

I understand that question, and it's not like I haven't asked myself the same before. Those are the same type of questions I ask when someone I love dies, or someone gets cancer. The normal and expected question is WHY. I understand that fully, and don't blame anyone for those thoughts. But I do not believe God puts a sickness on earth to hurt his people. I believe that bad things happen, and our God leads us down a road we were meant to take.

Whether that's because we're suppose to meet someone new, grow closer to our partner during quarantine, spend more time with the family we haven't seen, pay closer attention to our GOOD health and not taking that for granted-THAT is what I believe our God is capable of doing.

In the last month and a half, I have seen a lot of negativity in the world. But in the last month and a half I have also witnessed families becoming closer by doing random TikTok trends. I have seen groups being created on Facebook to try and involve people in simple things to do daily to aovid boredom. I've seen grandchildren visit their grandparents outside of nursing homes. I have seen the homeless get placed in hotels to avoid the spread of COVID 19. I have witnessed shelters literally being emptied so dogs wouldn't be alone in there! In a scary time, God still promises and brings peace. He brings our world, our jobs, and our minds closer to him and pulls us back into reality to guide us to what's truly important in life: Faith.

There is a lot of bad with all of this-that's just undeniable. I also can't tell you I'm not afraid because that would be a lie.

But I am also happy because I do have faith, and I know I owe that to God. I trust that however long I am stuck inside, God is with me. I know that every soul that passes from this horrible sickness will be welcomed with open arms into Heaven…and I know that even on my darkest days, God holds the light to lead me back to him.

I can't promise that I, you, or any of us will see the end any time soon, but God does. Just keep having the faith in him, and I promise together we can get through this all.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

3562
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11624

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
