Well hello little badass calendar
I know you have to be PC little calendar writer, but I do not!
In my world, “handing the job over to the universe” translates into “Giving it to G-d.”
Giving it to G-d is my way of thwarting worry and knowing that if something is meant to be for me, it will certainly happen – work itself out.
Here are my favorite go-to verses on the subject:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.”Psalm 46: 1-3
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”Proverbs 3: 5-6
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”Jeremiah 29:11
“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.”Psalm 59:22
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”Joshua 1:9
“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”Proverbs 16:9
“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.””Isaiah 41:13
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”Psalm 27:1
“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”Jeremiah 29:13
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…Isaiah 43: 2-3
Pertinent words from the original Badass to all of us who care to listen.
I wonder who has ever called G-d a badass? I am sure H- has a sense of humor!
