We all are afraid of risk. I am thinking what if I do not sell really well in France and I have spent all my money to get there etc. What if I fail, What if nobody likes my work. So what/ Life is not about money. Life is not about being pain free, Life is not about safety. If you want all those things then stay home and hoard your money and stay under the covers where it is warm and comfortable. Life is one hundred percent a risk. At least in our minds.
But here is the reality. We are not in charge of life. God is in charge of life. He can take you out in two seconds and then all your risk analysis is for nothing. He also can let something happen to you that you could never have foreseen. A tsunami, an earthquake, a flood, lightening, an aneurysm. You are done. It is over for you. No more time. Business Plan gone. The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.
The moral of the story is Plan but do not worry. There is nothing you can do to really make life predictable and risk free. Nothing. Make sure you are going to heaven by trusting in the Lord because that is the biggest thing to worry about. The rest is small potatoes.
