As I sat reflecting on my past life and the person I used to be long ago who worried about any and everything, I started thinking how good God has been to me and began thanking Him for new beginnings. God has brought me a mighty long way. I am so grateful to God to be the person I am today.
I remember a time when I would stress over everything, no matter how big or small. There were many times I would not eat and lose sleep worrying about things that were not in my control. I tried to fix things on my own. But one day…..something changed and I figured out I couldn’t do it on my own. I started praying, meditating on the Word and calling out to God. I sought his intervention. When things were not in my control, I learned to accept it. I gave it all to God. I didn’t worry about a thing. I left it in his hands. I turned my life over to God and I have not been the same ever since. My life changed for the better. Thank you Lord. I am grateful.
I don’t waste time worrying anymore. Even though there are times, not many, when I am stressed oftentimes I don’t even realize that I am. If it weren’t for telltale signs in my body indicating stress, I would never know it.
Here’s a simple word of advice to ease your fears when you find yourself at a crossroad and in a dilemma. I hope it helps you. Don’t spend time worrying, stressed about things you cannot change. Turn worry into worship, stressing into blessings. Give it to God. Count your blessings. He will handle it.
We may never understand the depth of God’s greatness. Stop placing limitations on God, leaving him only one option because of your stubbornness and disobedience. God’s greatness is unsearchable. We can’t trace Him. Even when you don’t understand his plan, trust Him.
Be blessed! –JD
Isaiah 40:28, 29 “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” (NIV)
