The World has come very far in the past hundred years. We have made advancements in technology, medicine, everyday comfort, and yet… with all that we have accomplished, has it been worth the price? With each passing day we rely more and more on our “Human Inventions”, our “Modern Conveniences”, and our “Everyday Luxuries”. So does this affect our relationship with God? Unfortunately, however much we’d like to deny it, it does (And not in a good way).
This modern era is full of worry, stress, and rush. Right now I’m juggling two jobs, SATs, College Applications, my personal life, and a million other things. When I feel overwhelmed or stressed out, this verse helps me remember that everything is part of Gods plan, and that He will take care of me:”Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” — Matthew 6:27
A friend once pointed out to me that it is entirely our own fault that life is so complicated. We make it so. Think about it… all of things that make our lives so busy are centered around US! If we focused more on HIM life would be far simpler, and better for all.
Praying helps a LOT. Take the time to let your life slow down, appreciate what God has given you, and just talk to Him. Like a loyal friend, He will always be there to listen, and unlike modern gadgets that will break or shut down, He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you!
