Nothing Lasts Forever

Last night as got ready for bed, I started to think about how life has changed and how it has impacted my life greatly. It seems just like yesterdays I was 15/16 years old again, listening to music that somewhat seemed depressing. As I laid in bed reminiscing all that has happened in life, I was overcome with fear, happiness, and excitement…but mostly fear. I wish I could pause where I’m at in life at this very moment, I wish I could go back a couple of years where I had nothing to worry about other than getting my homework done for the following day. There’s so much I miss that the thought of thinking about the future terrifies me. I can’t thank God enough for all that He has given me, and I know He even has better thing’s in store for me down the road.

The title to this post which is “Nothing Lasts Forever” was something I wasn’t even thinking of writing about. I had something totally different to blog about, but I just couldn’t sleep due to the fact I kept hearing those words “nothing lasts forever”. So much was running through my head last night, for example…

What if I can’t support myself financially? What is married life going to be like? Are my parents going to be alright once I am ready to move out? What if I lose my job for some weird reason, and have no money to afford rent? What am I going to do about college? Will I ever find a career I truly enjoy? Etc…..

I felt like God kept telling me to shush and that everything was going to be okay, I mean He’s gotten me this far why should that stop me from believing that He’ll carry me all the way through? Of course I trust in the Lord, and I know I shouldn’t worry about all those thing’s I just mentioned. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has thought of such thing’s, or at least I hope not I’m the only one. You could say I’m exaggerating, but this is what I seriously thought about all last night while trying to sleep. It’s like my brain likes to remind me of my fears right before I go to bed so then I can worry myself out until I fall asleep. Then I heard this song, and it relieved me knowing that God is strong enough to hold it all. He’ll be a lamp unto my feet, He’ll never let me fall from His grace, He’ll never let me stray from where I’m supposed to be. He’ll always pull me right back in. Here is the first part of the song that I am talking about…actually I’ll just post the whole song for you lol.

When fear feels bigger than my faith
And struggles steal my breath away
When my back’s pressed up against the wall
With the weight of my worries stacked up tall
You’re strong enough to hold it all
I will cast my cares on You
You’re the anchor of my hope
The only one who’s in control
I will cast my cares on You
I’ll trade the troubles of this world
For Your peace inside my soul
This war’s not what I would’ve chosen
But You see the future no one knows yet
And there’s still good when I can’t
See the working of Your hands
You’re holding it all
I will cast my cares on You
You’re the anchor of my hope
The only one who’s in control
I will cast my cares on You
I’ll trade the troubles of this world
For Your peace inside my soul
Im finding there’s freedom
When I lay it all on Your shoulders
Cast my cares
I will
Cast my cares
I will
Cast my cares on You
