Be worried for nothing

I have a constant need to be productive and get ahead and as developer I have a FOMO on the new and shiny JS front-end frameworks. 

Looking at God's activity in my life, God has been very good to me and my family.  All my career milestones were not a result of my effort but God's hand. 

  • I was able to study on a good school.  I have no control over this, it was God who blessed my parents for them to be able to send me to a good school.
  • I studied electronics engineering in school and I have very little interest in programming.  But during my first job, I was exposed to automation and programming.  That got me interested in programming and opened the doors for me to shift to IT industry.
  • I started as a Java developer and was happily doing that.  However, my employer decided to shift to Drupal.  I would never have done that on my own.  Drupal would have turned me off.  
  • Now I like Drupal and has been source of God's provision to our family.

My life is a testimony of God's goodness.  That I may be rested in the Lord and his goodness.  Not by my effort, but by God's faithfulness.

Judges 7:2

2 The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me.’
