Troubled


*A mind full of trouble  or a 

*A mind full of peace

These are  possible options we have before going to bed. 



The other night, I guess I am somewhere in between. Yes, I am quite bothered because I’ve been searching for a single receipt for an hour. The receipt for my Social Security contribution for the last four months. I knew I already made the payment but I can’t find the vouchers. Thoughts were running through my head, ‘what if I was wrong and failed to pay the contribution?’ 



“Ok you’re tired!” I told myself. "Go to sleep and see the online records in the morning.” Still, I was doubtful. Usually it would take months to reflect the current payments made by members. “Anyway, have it checked tomorrow....” Then I slept with a mind half-troubled. 


The next day before going through my usual morning routine, I flipped through my personal cards. These are handwritten and laminated notes, quotes and verses (the  image above). Actually, they're my shock absorbers whenever I’m troubled (lol). Then I made the online check. Voila!! Their databases were updated. ----> And so with my payments. Thank God!
Then I remembered this verse:
I was also reminded of this message:
don't be totally worried

I have similar experience. Receipt naman ng food. Di ko malaman kung san ko sya nailagay. Magugutom ako pagwala yun. Pero ang totoo pala ay wala naman pala akong binili. Kaladasan naman yung eye glass ko. Tumatanda na talaga. dyuk!

Beautiful verse and message. :)

The worst thing to think on a long drive is "Did I leave the oven on?"

..Oh I think I'm on the mind full of trouble? Yes, i think honestly I am.LOL..Anyways, I did really worried in many things in different circumstances but I adapt a gradual changed not to do it anymore. Maybe a lil now. Just a little. :P

Oo nga Yhadz, sometimes it not so easy to go through a lot of trying situations...we really have to hold on, putting our trust in Him.
