My life is in your hands.....


 

My thoughts this Tuesday are a little different but I have this on my heart to share.  It is written more in the context of advice to myself that I feel others can use as well when they need words of encouragement.

Anxiety and worrying are the devil.

I know this and yet I still cannot seem to shake the anxious and nervous feeling I get when things in life spin out of my control. I know I am not the only one who struggles with this, at least I hope not :)


FACT:

My life is in the hands of my Lord and Savior so my worrying only gets in the way of his work and his will.  This is a testament of the work I have to do in the Faith area with my walk with Christ.  I have to let go and let God do his work.  My life is not mine.  It is his.  Anxiety and worry will not change the outcome of what is in his will to happen.  While I may not understand why things or situations take place at the time, everything happens for a reason. No matter what the situation, I am not in control. 

REALITY:

When my life does not go according to my plan my brain goes into overdrive and I obsess over the situation or issue.  This is such a dangerous cycle and one I pray everyday I will break.  This cycle of thinking interferes with his plan.  Even your thoughts get in his way.  I have to learn once I put it in his hands, I must leave it there and not try to take back the control.

SOLUTION:

Remember, worrying and anxiety over things and situations will not change the outcome.  All it does is interfere with my state of mind and waste my time.  Turn to the good book and get closer to him in times of adversity.  I cannot control it so LET IT GO.  My life if in your hands Father and I know you will never lead me down the wrong road.
