Prior to my journey back to God, my life was a myriad of mistakes. The one mistake that always came shortly after the first one, was saying “What am I gonna do?” I was/am very good at being my own worst enemy, even after recommitting my life to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The one mistake I kept making when things went wrong, was to immediately respond with “What am I gonna do?”. When I thought about it one night after uttering that phrase, it hit me how ridiculous it was.
Why? Because when I surrendered my life to God, I turned everything over to him, including my problems so I didn’t have to worry about them anymore. With God I’m not alone anymore. I now know that if I do my part, he’s there to help me get through the bad times.
In honor of finally getting that through my thick skull I made a New Year’s resolution I intend to keep. I’m will never utter the phrase “What am I gonna do?” ever again. From now on when things go south I’m going with a new phrase “I can’t wait to see what God’s gonna do”.
