If you haven’t watched 3 idiots (idiats), plix go look for it and WASH it… Lol. Seriously, please watch that movie. You would understand how the phrase All iz well came about. It is one Indian movie I would seriously recommend to anybody. And trust me, I have watched a lot, I can’t even remember their titles no longer.
Anywayz, that’s not the essence (per say) of this write-up (so I aint telling you the story, GO WATCH IT). I just wanna ask a question. What is it with us women (and some men) and worrying. I read an article which somehow did relate to Open Heavens topic for today. Don’t get me wrong. I know it isn’t easy not to worry, especially in our world today and I for one am guilty of worrying (at times). It is just that somehow, it is us women who tend to worry more. Guys are usually just relaxed about so many things we worry about.
Agreed. All humans worry, though at various levels, it is still quite amusing that at times what we worry about actually doesn’t make sense. Or at times, it is exactly what we worry about that ends up happening. Take Job as an example. We worry over some issues that we shouldn’t even worry about. We worry about the past (which beats me, though Pastor Adeboye did make a point about why people worry about the past- because they are afraid their past bad actions could have negative consequences on their present and future), the present and the future.
Yes, we have all done things in the past that would most likely have an impact on our present and future but by worrying about what is past, does that change whatever the consequence might be? And I want to believe that whatever the consequence may be sef, if we truly are born again, God would see us through. Might not be easy but He would. Take David as an example. Or Paul.
Also, I tend not to know the difference between thinking about an issue and worrying about an issue. There happens to be a very THIN line between thinking and worrying. There are times I think I was actually thinking about the issue but when I look back I discover I was actually worried.
For us Christians and even everybody, I think the earlier we start learning not to worry about anything and realize that all iz (is) well like Rancho said. No matter what it is. As long as we believe and serve God. All things work together for our good.
Matthew 6:25-32, 34
25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Like Rancho said and kept saying (while beating his chest) All iz well. You really should hear the story about how that phrase came about
