STOP FREAKING OUT

What is going on in your life that makes you just not be able to calm down and trust God? You know God does care for you and wants you to rest in Him. It is hard sometimes to remember that when things happen and we feel like we want to take the controls away from God and arrange things our own way. God's plan for our life is better than anything we could fabricate. Why not trust Him with situations and stop 'freaking out'?

The Bible says  in Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God." Can you be still no matter what life throws at you? It takes practice. God is more than able to handle situations that come your way.

Take a moment and read Psalm 112. Verse 6 in particular tells us "surely the righteous will never be shaken." Constant worry will not do anything. Sitting on 'pins and needles' wondering the 'what ifs' of life and speculating about terrible tragedies and accidents is not going to get you closer to God. Release your fears to God. There is no reason to lose control and 'freak out' as God knows the future. Getting yourself mentally frustrated worrying isn't good for anyone.


PRAYER: Father I give you my life and this day and every day help me to relax and let you do the controlling and for me to stop sorrying so much. Each and every day I need the strength only you can give to trust you with all the details of my life and things going on around me. In Jesus Name. Amen.
