Do you have a life motto?
I've heard of some people who do. Or who have a life verse.
But the thing about a life verse is that it can be hard to find one without taking it out of context.
Yes, I have a minor in Bible, why do you ask?
I came across a saying the other day. In a work of fiction, no less. One character was telling another character not to worry about the outcome of a situation, and that "God is still God."
I took it to heart. Literally, I reminded myself of that very fact multiple times a day. For several days. And it's starting to stick.
It's hard for me to "let go and let God" as I've said before. I'm too independent by half, and while I tend to find pride in that, it's most certainly something that's holding me back in my relationship with God.
Don't get me wrong, I love that I know how to change my own oil and all, but there's a point when independence becomes a hindrance.
I want to have control over situations and tend to worry unnecessarily. And incessantly. So when I hear the phrase "God is still God" it reminds me that through everything, good or bad, right or wrong, God does not change.
He does not change.
Even when I stress out, even when I'm sad, even when I'm happy, even when I try to plan the future, even when I feel my world is falling apart, God is still God.
He's still there. Same as yesterday. Same as tomorrow.
It's an awesome thing.
