There are times when I feel like I need to save myself. I let my ego take over and I think I’m a superhero. But I don’t have all the answers, I never did. And as hard as I try I never will. I’ve run out of options and escape plans from A-Z. I’m too defiant to surrender and to prideful to call for reinforcements. So what's a girl to do?!
God has a plan for everything. He’s already worked out a way to get me through to the other side of my struggles. The only thing I need to do is be still. It’s when you start to fight your problems yourself instead that you begin to create problems fo yoself.
- Your constant worry and your insistence on worrying is saying that you don’t trust him. That you are doubtful of His word that He will lead you to the other side. God said don’t doubt him.
“Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea (the waves) that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind." James 1: 6
UH HELLO! Ain’t nobody got time to be blown ‘hither and thither’ by no wind!
2. All fighting does is prolong the situation keeping you absolutely miserable in the process. Why make things more complicated than you need to?
So a couple things need to happen here... And believe me; I’ve been fighting my entire life so I understand that it’s a lot easier said than done. You need to accept the fact that whatever it is that you’re dealing with is out of your control at this point. It’s bigger than you. Swallow your pride. Allow Him to take control.
Are you like me and hate having to admit that you’re not actually Wonder Woman? That sometimes you need help? No problem! The cool thing about it is nobody has to know- a silent prayer can work wonders! This can stay between just you and God.
Believe me my love, as hard as it feels trying to swim and keep your head above the water He will NOT let you drown. I promise.
