Who's Bigger- Stress or Yahuwah?

The stress of every day life is no stranger to me. Up  until recently I would have never thought that possible. In the past, I couldn't understand how people would get so stressed over things they had no control over. I would say, "There's nothing you can do to change it, Yah will make it right we just have to have faith." How I'm having to eat my own words now. The ironic and funny thing is, that its money that we stress out about and I couldn't give a whoop about money. Although, when you owe somebody, its easy to let doubt and fear crawl in and worry you. When did I let money rule my life?

This is when my old self needs to come up and smack me in the face for a bit of a reality check. So here goes my old self....

Bills, and IOU's will always be there. There will always be another month where money gets tight and you struggle to make ends meet. So have no doubt that it will be there when you get back. We owe it to ourselves, for our sanity and overall health to not let it get to us. Yes, I know its easier said then done, but would you rather worry over this months rent or enjoy your family and friends? I don't know about you all, but I would rather have fun with the people I love. As long as we have faith in Yah, there is no reason for us to worry and stress over the little things in life. They may seem HUGE when you're faced with those fears, but when you take a step back those things are really small. Sadly, most people don't realize this until its too late. We let those "little things" get in our way of happiness and love. Until a loved one gets hurt or sick or even old age comes, then we realize that we wasted our life on petty stuff and didn't enjoy what was in front of us. Yahuwah says that if we are his people we will always have food and raiment. He never promised a roof over our head, so anything else we are given is a huge blessing. We miss that though, never appreciating the things we do have. We complain and grumble because we don't have the latest piece of technology or that we can't get a spouse to buy us flowers. Here's a sad reality, even the poorest people in our country are considered rich in a lot of other countries. So yes, money will be there tomorrow whether you have it or not, it's not ours to worry about. Who is your master? Yah....or money?  We have become a slave to our own greed, lust, stress, coveting and so many others. What's it going to take for us to come back to reality and enjoy and find happiness in what we do have? Will it be this post, or maybe something bad happens to you or even a loved one? What is it going to take for us to put our faith in our heavenly father and give the reins of stress and worry to him. We can do nothing ourselves but from the grace and mercy of Yah, through him all things are made possible.

I don't know if this helps anyone else who might stumble upon this post, but I know that made me feel a bit better. Sometimes we just need a little encouragement to realize that we're not alone in this world. That we don't have to carry the weight of the world, there are people and Yah...there to help you along.
May Yahuwah bless you all.

The Road Unmarked

Walk through the corridors of time.
Paths long since overused.
It holds the footprints of those.
Who walked long before you.

How many have there been?
What were their history? 
They must have walked long.
While on their own long journey.

Can we learn from the past?
Mistakes made in haste.
The ones made in consideration.
Will we repeat history?

The road is well worn.
Making it easy to follow.
To walk in previous footsteps.
No need to make our own.

Does it not make it all the more.
So easy to do the same.
Blatantly obvious mistakes.
Of those gone before?

The path unmarked.
Is not an easy one to follow.
It has burrs and thistles.
Uneven ground and holes unseen.

If you take the unmarked trail.
You'll fall and scrape your knee.
You might even get scratched.
Although you'll not be alone.

The ground will give way.
To beauteous valleys and mountains.
Flowing with rivers and hills.
Sights seen by none.

Take the path unknown.
To the place seen by none.
Find your peace and rest.
Make a journey of your life.
