Sometimes when I sit still, really still, and think about my life—I start to chuckle.
As the busy days go by I can get so worked up about silly little things.
But in the end, there is only one thing that matters.
I am blessed beyond comprehension.
And I am loved.
That very simple fact overwhelms me.
How can I worry when I have a good God who loves me so dearly…so completely.
I tend to get worked up or fearful about the little things. But with my God, I don’t even have to worry about the BIG things, because he is in control. No matter WHAT happens, I can rely on him to work everything out.
BUT that doesn’t mean that it will work out the way I want it to, or the way I envision it will happen. God is full of mystery and he tends to work in ways that we least expect.
AND I AM OK WITH THAT. At least I am daily working towards being ok with that.
I wake up every single day knowing that my God loves me, cares for me, and has a plan for my life. It is futile to worry. All I have to do is walk in obedience, and he will take care of the rest.
It is not just about trusting God, it is about relinquishing control.
The LORD is my life and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
