I got an answer from God that I have really been looking for. I always wondered why I have to worry about people’s problems to the point to where I make them my own problems. People were always like ‘Just don’t worry about it’ and ‘It’s their problem so they should deal with it.’
And then they would say whether I cared about them or not, I shouldn’t worry about it because it’s not my responsibility. But I still felt like it was. I realized that everything is in God’s hands and he makes things the way He wants them.
But I also learned that that doesn’t mean we have to just sit back and only worry about ourselves or nothing at all. We are God’s disciples for a reason.
It is us who are supposed to change the world, and how are we going to do that if we are apathetic about everything.
God showed me this through the book, The Purpose Driven Life. I was reading and then there was a verse that said:
‘The thing that has made me most upset is that I care about you so much
This is the passion of God burning inside of me!’
– 2 Corinthians 11:2-4 (MSG).
I was completely floored that the thing I thought was a burden was actually a blessing.
Well, God is awesome!
