I have been really anxious the past week. I have to pack up my life over the past 10 months and transport it to another continent, my mom is having serious surgery in a few days, and as much as I’m trying to keep my schedule free the next 6 days to just enjoy Ireland, I’m working and have plans almost every night with different people.
I woke up this morning feeling, what do you know, anxious! Thankfully it’s a holiday and I have free time today, so I decided to sit by the big window in my living room with my Bible and journal. That was a good idea because I was reminded of why I am living. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 2:2 that he “decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” So, for the next few days, that is my prayer. To concentrate only on knowing Jesus and His death on the cross, the Gospel. Because when I think about Jesus and the cross, I am reminded of His incredible love, which makes me love Him more and love others more. Loving God, loving others. Really, nothing else matters, not even the things I am most anxious about.
