Today, I drove my daughter to an early morning Speed & Strength class at a local school. After dropping her off, I was mulling over my to-do list in my head. And, admittedly, churning a few worries. I passed a church that’s between the school and home, and their sign read, “Less fret. More faith.” How about that for a message from above? As I thought about that message, I felt a sense of calm wash over me as I finished my drive.
Regardless of whether you practice a specific religion or believe in a higher power or order in the universe, there’s an opportunity to do just as the sign says - less fretting and more faith.
Right now, the world could use more faith in:
Those are big things, but don’t you think that we’re often consumed by things that are too small? That task, that person, that comment, those things. And yet there’s so much around us we can’t see when we’re fretting over the little things. The little things cause us to play small and think small. What if, instead, we actively practiced faith in the bigger things?
I am one to get caught up in planning and details and trying to control things. I haven’t fully learned to have faith that things will work out and that I can cast those worries, all of them, and my needs will be fulfilled. It’s something I’m working on.
Recently, I asked my Mom what she was going to do for the evening. She answered, “Dinner. A few tasks around the house. Watch the news. And then watch a movie with your Dad.” It struck me that I rarely watch the news anymore, all the sensationalism and negativity gets on my nerves. I prefer to read my news so I can think it over and give it my own spin. It’s a place where I’ve decided that fretting isn’t worth it.
Where can you find opportunities for less fretting and more faith? Opportunities to give up the angst and control and believe, instead, in the path that’s laid out before you? Think it over, it might just bring you peace.
