Trust More - Worry Less
As much as I can say I am proud of who I am, I'd be lying if I said I didn't have days of defeat. Those days where you kind of just cancel all plans, curl up into a ball, are in a weird mood, and don't know why. Yeah, those days. There are times I feel like I've got everything figured out, and other times I can't decide what to eat and it seems like the biggest decision of my life. I like feeling in control of my life. I like knowing what's happening with my schedule and with my routine, and sometimes I feel a bit uneasy when things take a turn. I'm very in tune with God, He always listens, and I have always received my answers through a gut feeling, through a conversation, or through a dollar bill. If you don't know what I am talking about, click a previously written post here. I mean it can't become more clear than that. Sometimes I drive without music on, and I'll just talk. I talk about anything and everything on my mind. I talk about why I am happy, why I am sad, what is stressing me out, and things I am worried about.
Well, worrying is fear. Worrying is not having faith. Worrying is trying to control what happens tomorrow, and we all know that is not completely possible. We can control how we act in situations, but we cannot control the situation itself.
Trusting God is the antidote to fear and worry.
I have put all of my trust in God, because I truly believe He knows my heart better than I do. He has never failed me. Whenever I look back at a situation I was in that I worried so heavily about, I realize that it was all in God's plan to begin with. In all of those worrisome situations, the end result ended up being better than what I could have even imagined. He's got my back, He's got yours, and I'm sure of it. Of course those words at times can seem overplayed or easier said than done, but try for yourself. Let go for the moment, and let God.
The things we worry about end up never even happening. If they do - which is probably a very few amount of times - they end up not being that terrible.
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Think about it. How many times have we stopped what we were doing to sit and worry about the negatives we think may happen? How many times have the negatives come true? What are some things you worry about?
I used to worry about my job, my past relationships, past friendships, school exams, etc. I used to worry so much that my anxiety took over. Even when God had taken something away from me, the situation ended up being a blessing in disguise. If one loses their job/relationship, maybe there is a greater purpose for this person. Even though one may struggle, feel depressed and sad, there may be something greater waiting for them. God doesn't close one door without getting ready to open another with bigger and greater things.
