Light Afflictions

I’m often described as an ice queen. Apparently I lack emotions because I “never care”. Am I wrong not to care or have I taken 1 Peter 5:7 out of context? Lol πŸ€”

The scripture says, ” cast all cares on God for He cares for you”. And that brothers and sisters, is my defence lol. Why should I care if Jesus cares? Am I supposed to stress out and become a nervous wreck over things that are beyond my control?
Being a Christian is not easy. We go through so many adversities, but the apostle Paul describes them as light afflictions. My God! Imma have to say it again. They are light afflictions! And He goes on to say in 2 Corinthians 4:17 that they last but for a moment!! Wait, he did not stop there, glory to God! “They last for a moment but we have an eternal glory that outweighs them all!”πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ What a word!

Paul is saying that we should not worry about the seen but rather, focus on the unseen because the seen is temporary and the unseen is eternal.

And so I set my mind on the higher things (eternity) (Colossians 3:2) this is a scripture that I also meditated on so that my mind would be transformed.

Does it look like I have time to argue over nonsense or hate on people or care that people don’t like me? And better yet, if you don’t want to be my friend anymore, then bye! ✌🏾 And when I can’t pay my bills or the doctor’s report is bad, I focus on the promises of the God. Why worry when you can pray?

So by all means, let me be an ice queen, because I know my God has got me. I learnt to labour into rest. It takes so much effort not to care. It’s not simply ignoring an issue. It’s being confident in the Lord who saved you and walking in faith.

That does not mean I’m unsympathetic. But I will show you some tough love. I too was a nervous wreck and made things bigger than what they were in my head. Then I began to meditate on the word and got my life hunni. I ain’t got time to be miserable. Jesus died so that I may live, and that, is exactly what I’mma do. For he never gave us the spirit of fear chile, but of power, love and a sound mind. πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎ
