Sometimes, I am a slow learner…like in the case of worrying…but I’m finally getting it, finally realizing that of all the things I can do, worry is probably the least productive use of my time.
Worry doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t change the situation. It doesn’t move anything forward. It only adds to the anxiety, the list of what-ifs.
Let go and let God means to let go of worry and let God handle it.
My life is full of a lot of things I could worry about right now. A lot.
Yet, I am sitting here…peaceful. Wow…what a difference a year makes.
As much as I was not happy at that moment, having a friend point out to me how much I was worrying over a situation last June has been life changing.
I have learned to pray, to surrender, to release whatever is weighing me down. Let go and let God truly has meaning for me.
I have lost enough sleep. Wasted enough time fretting over things that have never happened. Tried to figure things out on my own too many times.
Sigh…a sigh of relief. My friend, you don’t have to carry those worries any more. Pray over them and offer them to God. Trust the One who loves You so much. Let go and let God. And then breathe….God’s got this.
And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
