Worry fuels the hurry

I enjoyed playing the song “Praise” by Elevation Worship on the guitar. I hope to jam it together with my DGroup or other people. I love playing the guitar and lately, I have been discovering worship songs that are fun to play! I don’t consider myself an advanced player but I would love to learn music theory to play any song without relying on Ultimate Guitar, but thanks to it I learned how to play the guitar. 🙂

There is also a song called “Jireh” by the same band and the lyrics hit close to home. I have always struggled with time and waiting. I am not in the mountaintop right now; I’ve been wandering while pondering in the plains again, having the urge to hurry and worry… How is it that whenever we hurry, we tend to worry? They are like partners. I think worry fuels the hurry, that’s why we want to run ahead of God’s time and plans and take matters into our own hands. It’s not human nature to appreciate things taking time, or time itself, because with time or waiting for the right time requires being content in the moment. We are not used to that; we are often agitated, always looking to move, searching for the next adventure, not appreciating the beauty of the “now”.

The song goes,

Jireh, You are enough
And I will be content in every circumstance
You are Jireh, You are enough

Forever enough
Always enough
More than enough

“Jireh” by Elevation Worship and Maverick City Music

The song speaks about being content in Jesus and trusting His timing and not worrying about anything, because God loves us so much that He can abundantly provide what we need, more than we can ask, think of or imagine, according to His power that is at work in us. It reminded me of some of my foundation verses (I say “foundation” because these are some of the verses that keep me anchored whenever I am anxious or discouraged): Matthew 6:25-34, Ephesians 3:20, Philippians 4:11-13 and lastly, Ecclesiastes 3 (A Time for Everything).

There are doors that I’m hoping to be opened but are still shut, but until then, I will wait on God and focus on what He has called me to do in the present.
