An Every Day Occurrence
…he went and begged him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. Then Jesus said to him, ‘Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.’ John 4:46-54 Anxiety – a feeling of worry, nervousness or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. Generally, I don’t make New Years resolutions but this year I felt called to make a spiritual one; to let go of the anxiety. Belief and anxiety don’t co-exist well together. It’s part of the reason our life is filled with ebb and flow. For certain, things don’t always go the way we think or expect them to go. However, we have to accept that in the same way that our life decisions will put us in places we expected they also put us in places we did not expect. Additionally, we have to accept that there are things in life we can control and things we cannot control. The good news is that Christ came in to the world that we might believe (John 3:16). The hour indeed has come. We only have to wait our turn. So we can let go of the anxieties because what appears as signs and wonders for us is an every day occurrence for God.
