This morning, your auntie stumbled upon this Instagram.com post by LeToya Luckett while perusing the Internet for content.
As you know, the Destiny's Child backup singer recently tied the knot with her 2nd husband in as many years. And because she didn't wait to make sure Tommicus Walker was the right one, the 37-year-old is now racked with worry.
She writes: "As I recently walked into this new chapter of my life as a Wife & a mother-in-Love of a beautiful little girl - the worry began to knock at my front door. Am I built for this?".
This is what happens to immature people who rush into things without taking the time and patience to wait until they know they are equally yoked.
Children want what they want right now. They don't have discernment or patience. They want immediate gratification because they cannot wait. When we mature as adults we leave behind childish things and immature behaviors.
That's where good parents come in. Good parents set boundaries and limits on their child's behavior. They teach their child to be less impulsive and to have patience. Good parents teach children the importance of delayed gratification to make them well-adjusted human beings.
LeToya clearly missed those lessons in life. She rushed headlong down the aisle with 2 men in less than a year because feelings. Her previous marriage -- in 2016 -- lasted 3 months.
She has good reason to worry.
Read my post on Dopamine: Lust for Love, so you don't make the same mistake as LeToya.
If I can be honest, As much as I pray & claim to be a “ leave it in Gods hands” believer, I struggle with worry. Am I the only one? ????? I pray & then worry. Still waiting for that to make sense? anyhoo! Today, God woke me up around 5 am and put one word on my heart...”TRUST!” He reminded me that he has me EXACTLY where he wants me. I’ve often struggled with the “what’s next” instead of living in the NOW. I’m sure I’ve missed so many beautiful moments looking past the beauty of NOW. Worrying about tomorrow instead of being thankful for today & the fact that God saw fit to allow me to even see another day. I think this comes from past hurts & feeling like I missed out or wanting to do more or feeling like I should be further in life. DON’T BELIEVE THAT LIE MY FRIENDS!!! You’re GOOD! God has you right in the palm of his hands. No matter the storm, no matter what it looks like RIGHT NOW , find the light in your load. When I say “load”, if it feels heavy know that you can go to God in prayer and hand it right on over to him! Kick the worry! That’s the whole point of prayer. I feel so grateful to Jesus for the sacrifice that he made for my sins!! He made it so that I could come boldly & confidently before God in prayer & have a one on one relationship with him. I’m beyond grateful! As I recently walked into this new chapter of my life as a Wife & a mother-in-Love of a beautiful little girl- the worry began to knock at my front door. Am I built for this? I’ve never been a mommy. My cooking skills are so ,so. My fresh smoothie game is aaiiiight. So I gotta share...everything? Will he still love me if? These are all the thoughts that started to flood my mind ? overwhelmed with worry instead of seeing the blessing that God had actually givin me far & beyond what I’ve prayed for all of these years. Welp! Today I choose to STOP THE WORRY & put on my new crown as a WARRIOR!! A prayer WARRIOR for my family! A WARRIOR FOR GOD! I can literally feel a new strength come over me as I write this! My mom always said , “ worry is sin” now I get it. God forgive me. Lead me! I bind up worry & fear & I will TRUST YOU with my whole heart. -Mrs. Walker ?? worrier ?? WARRIOR ?
