While studying this morning, I was reminded of how absurd human opinions can be. Since I have been on this planet, there have been certain medicines one can purchase across the counter at times while at other times they require prescriptions. Following research, often foods are detrimental to one’s health while at other times they are needed for nutrition. In the fashion world before the 60’s, the body size for a woman that was popular was short and rather sturdy; then the 60’s promoted clothing for tall thin women.
As I pondered this, it became apparent that the only constant for me has been God and His love for me. To attempt to heed human opinions seem ridiculous. Fear often stems through paying attention to “what the latest is” in beliefs, styles, etc. Excessive planning follows that line of thinking leaving God out, which, of course, is impossible. Today, my prayer is to catch my thinking early on as it begins to wander and keep my focus on God/Love. Psalm 46:10 states “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
