Black Circles and a Starry Night

So while I am still figuring out how I want to organize this blog, and while I am up late writing this due to my ability of non-sleep...Insomnia (I wrote this last night at 1:30 AM). I will write here some thoughts through my dark, sleepy eyes at night, which is nice because I can see stars from my window.

Many of times have I been in a situation where I just don't know what to do anymore. I end up worrying about what is going to happen in the upcoming future. The future I am referring to can either be close by or beyond any eye but God could ever see. It's a shame either way, because I should earnestly be turning away from anxiety and turning towards our Creator. "How am I supposed to know what is going to happen?" That question that I think to myself leads to yet another question. "Should my fear of not knowing what's going to happen in my life dictate my actions and choices that I make now?" That's I think something that tugs at our hearts and we should know how to go about dealing with it, and here is where I will tell you how I have come to peace with it. How I became confident in my choices not based on fear, but in faith.
A dear friend of mine told me to read a verse one day when I was going through a time of disappointment and strife. It is one of my favorite verses in the bible, and has always been, and at this time I speak of, a reminder of who is ultimately in control and who dictates where my life will go.

  "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."
~Philippians 4:6-7

Through this verse, if I pray and lay my concerns to Him and trust that in whatever I am doing in life, He will guide me and show me what it is He wills of me. Taking away all anxiousness from my weary, weak mind.
This is a lesson that I am always strengthening to this day, and will always continue to. It's not easy, but it makes things easier in the long run if you trust, pray, and have faith. It is something a man should do in life as we men go into the world and begin to start our families. The only way we can be the rock for our earthly families is to have faith and rely upon our stable rock and our ultimate Savior.

And so, I am beat. I hope you found this encouraging as it has and continues to be for me. There are a couple blog posts I will be writing soon on my list. One is a group challenge I have agreed to partake upon and the other will possibly be on my first film I scored for my good friend Todd Kaumans.
Until then, ignore my black circles around my eyes and enjoy the beauty of the starry night!
