I find, as I know many others do, that I’m most touched, inspired and encouraged by the teachings contained in the Bible when times are tough. Lately it seems every time I “open” (on my iPhone) and read those ancient words, I find exactly what I need for that day.
Undoubtedly the greatest piece of advice I received as a young police officer was to “only worry about what you can control.” Today, I am reminded of that sage advice by Matthew 6:31-34. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
Lately, I’ve been trying to figure out how we’re going to make ends meet. Police Academy is growing and may someday be financially sustainable, but someday isn’t a wise financial plan for my family’s future. My initial instinct is to go make it happen: find job; get job; pay bills. But as I consider the options before me, nothing seems to be the right path. So I wait, albeit with eyes and ears open, for a door to open.
“Your heavenly Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
