God's in Charge

Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so.  Genesis 1:9 NASB

There were days when I lay on my bed and cried my eyes out because I felt my life would amount to nothing. I felt so incapable that I wondered how I was ever going to make it. The burden of living with this feeling was removed when these words in Genesis took hold of my heart. Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear," and it was so. 

In the beginning, the earth was like a ball of water, but there was land covered by the water. The land was not called into being as light but was commanded to appear from underneath the waters. On this hidden land, everything that was, is, and will be existed. Trees sprouted, animals were created, and humans were formed. On this earth, life began and still remains.

God knows our potential because He placed it in us and sees us for who we are. He is able to make our lives beautiful and devoid of fear and worry if we’ll place our lives in His hands and trust Him. There are things hidden in us that only God knows and can work with in ways beyond our imagination.

Trying to put the pieces of our lives together will amount to nothing if we put aside the center piece who puts everything into perspective. If we hand everything to God, He will not only lead us into each day but will also build our lives into ones whose impact has no boundaries. At their end, He will look on them and say they have been good. God is in charge and all beautiful things emanate from Him.

Worry less, pray more, trust daily, and smile more. God loves you and everything will fall into place.
