All my friends were talking about it. I decided to finally just get the Series and see what they were talking about; I wanted to join the conversation. I went to my video guy and took Season I and Season II. He informs me that now he runs a delivery service and for Season III & IV, I can just call him from home and he will deliver at no extra charge – yay for competition in business leading to better services and yay for more convenience or is it laziness – I digress.
Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series about Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine (drug popularly known as meth), in order to make a tonne of money and secure his family’s financial future before he dies.
In Season Two, Walter White has finished the first stage of chemotherapy and undergoes a scan to check the response of the tumor to the treatment. He has to wait for one week for the results – this is a long one week. He expects the worst and even begins to prepare his family for his death.
I feel sorry for Walter, his wife and teenage son. They all start to imagine how it will be without him and the episode ends. For a while my feelings were caught up in the TV world – I felt sorry for his wife and his son who were trying to imagine a life without Walter. Then it hit me!
If there’s a season IV, Walter White must still be alive! The main character never dies in any quality production! All of a sudden I felt so much better. Plus, I could just press play and find out. Phew!
This is how God must view things when he says, don’t worry. He looks into the future and knows what will happen. If something bad will happen, God knows He will be there for you and will help you through it. If something good is about to happen, He knows you will enjoy it. Worrying just makes you miserable while you wait, it doesn’t change anything.
Matthew 6:25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink or about what you will wear. Is not life more important than food and the body more important than clothes?
Life is more than food and clothes and houses and cars and money and marriage – life is more than that. The scripture here implies that when we focus on attaining these things, we miss something more important – life.
God has seen the next episode in your life, actually He knows all the way to the end. He knows.
You can ask Him; you can trust Him; you can follow Him confidently into the future as the seasons unfold.
