Writing this philosophy paper has been the cause of my frustration, stress and inability to enjoy Spring Break. Knowing that this paper was the one thing that I had to do over Spring Break, I did not plan to meet up with many friends from home or really have quality time with family. And I didn't even finish the paper.
On the plane ride back to school, I read some of Francis Chan's book called Crazy Love.
"Worry implies that we don't quite trust that God is big enough, powerful enough, or loving enough to take care of what's happening in our lives. Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or our tight grip of control... They declare our tendency to forget that we've been forgiven, that our lives here are brief, that we are headed to a place where we won't be lonely, afraid, or hurt ever again, and that in the context of God's strength, our problems are small indeed." pg 42
