“Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” – 1 Peter 5:7
I am always trying to figure things out.
Sometimes this is a good thing, maybe even one of my strengths because I like to find solutions to fix problems.
But. What if I can’t fix it?
My mind will race. I’ll go over everything and then re-go over everything again… and again and AGAIN!
It’s exhausting just writing about it.
I’ve learned to give my concerns to God, however I am guilty of taking them back.
Frustrating myself and in the process robbing myself of peace and joy.
So it is… the life of an over thinker.
God is so patient with me.
He never intended life to be so mentally frustrating and exhausting.
My thoughts can be so noisy sometimes.
I hear Him quietly tell me…
“Let Go. T R U S T”
For an over thinker like myself, letting go almost feels irresponsible.
Because, you see I have convinced myself that it is my responsibility… I have to figure it out… I have to find a way.
It’s silly and really makes no sense.
The One who is asking me to let go, the One who is asking me to trust… is GOD.
Honestly, do I really think that all my over thinking can actually handle life’s situations better than God can?!?!
Oh Lord, have mercy on my silly little over thinking brain!
Someday, hopefully I will know the complete freedom of not worrying about things.
But for now, I consider myself to be a recovering over thinker…
Everyday I am learning to let go quicker and to trust Him more.
