Into the hands of God
I have noticed a trend in my life. When things are going really well, my relationship with God is strong. I feel a deeper connection with God, I find it easier to pray and to praise Him. But when I feel like my life is in turmoil￼, I tend to place God in the back burner.
I started to reflect upon this deeper, and I realized that for me, it was because I didn’t want to let go of my control. I’m definitely a fixer type of personality. I want to fix things that are broken and want to make things perfect. Then I feel like my heart is at rest and at peace. But when it’s not, I go into “Diana-over-drive” and get to fixing.
But what I have come to realize is that there are somethings that I just cannot fix. There are somethings that are completely out of my hands, and I need to place those into the hands of God.
It’s not easy to trust. It’s not easy to know that when we loosen the grip on something, that God will take control. It’s hard to believe in those things. But that’s where faith in God’s promise comes in.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Instead of depending on yourself and hiding your problems from God. Give them to Him. He’s the greatest fixer.
