One day I went to grab my headphones and became immediately frustrated once I saw how tangled they were. How many of you are at a point in your life where you feel tangled? Tangled is a feeling that we usually experience in a state of uncertainty. You feel as if everything is going in different directions and quite frankly you wish you had a handle. Whenever you unravel one aspect of your life or unravel an issue, you discover another KNOT.
Soon you become defeated at the thought of the task ahead of you. Now overwhelmed, you do not know how to tackle the seemingly insurmountable task. Worrying about the future you exclaim out to God asking him to “bless you” or “give you a sign.” However, what you must bear in mind is simple. Jesus said it best, “ Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?”
SLOW DOWN!! Stop asking God to bless a life that you yourself are absent from. You are so worried about the future that you become consumed by what’s to come. While it is good to plan ahead and make wise decisions, you do not want to be so concerned with the future that you fail to appreciate the present. Sometimes, we encounter entanglements in life so that we may PAUSE and ASSESS where we are.
Want to know how to deal with a state of entanglement? Of course you must trust God in the midst of the process. But, you also need to be willing to devote the proper time so that you may UNWIND, UNRAVEL, AND STRAIGHTEN UP! It may be tiring, frustrating, or even downright annoying but in the end you will be RESTORED!
