So imagine my surprise today - not! - when I opened my daily devotional by Sarah Young and read the following:
"Anxiety is the result of envisioning your future without me. So the best defense against worry is staying in communication with me." Woohoo, I can't believe I actually came to this conclusion on my own before reading it. Feeling pretty good about myself, I continued reading only to have the wind immediately taken out of my sails:
"If you must consider upcoming events, follow these rules: 1) Do not linger in the future because anxieties sprout up like mushrooms when you linger there. 2) Remember the promise of My continual presence; include Me in any mental imagery that comes to mind. This mental discpline does not come easily, because you are accustomed to being god of your fantasies."
Now in all the years of my televised acceptance speeches, I never envisioned God hovering over my shoulder. Surely I got these accolades on my own, right? Argh...I have been the god of my fantasies!
