  1. The biggest area in my life that causes me to worry is my future. As a young man, I am at a stage in my life where I must face the decision of what path to take. I often feel lost and struggle to know God’s will for my life. Another area where I experience uncertainty, is when I fear that I don’t have what it takes to accomplish my goals in crossfit. I feel a very strong pull towards crossfit, and I’m extremely passionate about using the gifts that God has blessed me with to honour him. I feel like I have been led to crossfit and my affiliate for a much bigger reason. This chapter is so comforting and gives me peace and reassurance about my future. Jesus said “Why do you have so little faith? Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” And another awesome verse for anybody out there who is also experiencing uncertainty and doubt is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

    Also, here is an amazing song in which I find so much comfort and peace in times of doubt, Hillsong- Oceans https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSupcb4QpCY
