What If


Have you ever boarded the WHAT IF train?

It starts with a thought about a reality in your life

that you are facing

or

you know you will have to face.

And then it happens

as all the worst case scenarios

start flooding into your brain

as you board

the

WHAT IF

train.

And it is never a smooth ride,

because the

WHAT IFS

get bigger & get worse

as

fear, worry, anxiety, & hurt

become your traveling buddies.

The

WHAT IFS

turn into the

NOW WHATS

so that you are

headed to that not-so-good place.

Do you have a WHAT IF?

But

WHAT IF

you and I just let the

WHAT IF

train pass by without boarding it~

because the

WHAT IFS

are just that~

the

WHAT IFS

that haven't happened & that may never happen,

so why think as though they will.

What is pretty funny as I am pondering this,

I just heard the whistles of the passing train.

Hmm!

Okay GOD I get it,

as a smile is on my face

because

that is what I have to do~

just let the

WHAT IF train pass by,

because it is

HIS train that I board

as

HE always takes me to the perfect place

that is

far away from the

WHAT IFS

because

Who HE is

trumps every

WHAT IF.

HIS train

takes you & I

to places where the

WHAT IFS

are not the

worst case scenarios

because

HE IS

the best case scenario

when we

follow HIS train of thought~

*And so, LORD, where do I, ________, (put your name)

put my hope? My only hope is in You" (Psalm 39:7).

*I, ________, praise GOD for what HE has promised.

I, ________, trust in GOD, so why should I, ________, be afraid? (Psalm 56:4).

*Even though I, ________, walk through the darkest valley,

I, ________, will fear no evil,

for YOU are with me; YOUR rod and YOUR staff, they comfort me" (Psalm 23:4).

Therefore,

Goodbye

WHAT IF

train~

"So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather,

we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen.

For the things we see now will soon be gone,

but the things we cannot see will last forever." (2 Corinthians 4:18)
