CROSS THAT BRIDGE WHEN YOU GET THERE
Life’s travels take us down many roads. Some roads are paved (None in gold that I have seen; only I wish); others not. Arriving to our destination is the primary objective. Hills, valleys, and bridges we encounter along the way. To “Cross that bridge when you get there” means to not worry about a possible future problem, but deal with it when and if it occurs." Why worry about issues that don’t exist or haven’t happened? Besides, some may not occur.
One of our childhood chats was, “Weight brought the bridge crumbling down.”
Likewise, stress and worry produce weighty consequences. They can take their toll, become “heavy” burdens placed on our shoulders and problems that we carry around. Oh, my aching back! Anxieties and sleepless nights can follow.
What's the antidote? It's simple. Enjoy the moment! Reasonably, prepare for tomorrow; live for today! Deal with problems when and if they occur. The scriptures in Matthew 6:34 tells us: “Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Finding the balance is achievable, but is not always easy. We are encouraged to “let go and let God!” Try it and see the positive results! It’s definitely worth the wait as it will alleviate the weight!
