Stellar Kart is one of my all time favorite bands. They sing this song labeled, “Always Waiting”. I absolutely love it, because it is SO relative to everyone, and I mean EVERYONE.
I got touched by this song, because I’ve been doing this a lot! I am always waiting for anything, but now. I am waiting for the upcoming days, the next events that I’ve planned for in my life, or dreaming about things in the future. I don’t appreciate ‘the now’ anymore. I pray that God helps me focus on Him and what is happening in my life NOW rather than what will be. It kinda reminds me about that verse in Philippians.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Do not be anxious about anything…pahaha, I FAIL!!!!!!!! I am always anxious about the next event in my life. I guess I just need to work on that 🙂
These are part of the lyrics to SK’s song:
You never find peace of mind on your own,
You can’t be content when you live in tomorrow,
He is the one you should be looking for.
That second line is really quite eye-catching. It’s abundantly true, if we’re always looking forward to something that hasn’t happened yet, we will never be content. So, STOP IT!!! My problem: I can’t…for some reason in my head, I always think about the next day and how I think everything will go. But, of course when the day comes and my plans follow through, it’s never how I thought they would go. Sometimes they are better, sometimes lacking in my expectations…but that’s a bunny trail.
So, I wonder, will I always be waiting for anything but now? I guess by asking that question I’m totally messing up already…sheesh, this mind of mine is hard to keep up with…
