Sometimes I think I spend more of my time worrying than I do actually living. It’s almost like clockwork: The “What if?” monsters seem to find their way into my thoughts more often than I’d care to admit.
When I took this picture of the seagulls hovering around Niagara Falls, I couldn’t help but pause. Look at their peace. Look at their grace, I thought. They spend each day, even each moment, not worrying about the next. They don’t worry about what they will eat or where they will rest. They just know and believe it will happen, because they are provided for.
What more would God provide for us – the only ones He breathed life into?
Let’s make this the first day of a worry-free life.
Is it easier said than done? Absolutely. Is it terrifying to even fathom that level of hands-offness? Of course. I hear you. But imagine this: Tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after, you can live in freedom knowing that you took your hands off the wheel and trusted that whatever happens will be perfect.
Be well today, and lean into your newfound freedom.
