‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’ – Philippians 4:6 [NIV]
I don’t know about you but my daily life can be extremely busy. In fact, if you haven’t noticed… the entire world is extremely busy.
Today, people have so much going on. Whether it’s with school, work, social media, friendships, relationships, family and so on and so on… we have so much happening in our lives at once.
With all these things there comes amazing times and experiences but there also comes some negative times as well.
Because of all the busyness we can become stressed due to the endless things piling up. We start to not take enough time out for ourselves, meaning we begin to worry about everything, which can lead us into anxiety and depression.
But, how and why do we allow this to happen?
Well, what I’ve noticed is that we’ve seemed to all decide to let everything upon ourselves. We’ve let everything that’s ever happened build up by pushing it to the side, moving onto the next thing, coming back to everything at a later date to find a pile of other things to deal with as well. We’ve made ourselves believe we can sort out every problem we face, even though we can’t and probably won’t take the time to anyway.
So, what do we do?
You see, we as humans aren’t supposed to handle everything on our own. We can’t. Purely because its not what we were designed to do. We need Jesus. We need to stop and take time out of our day to give everything to Him. It doesn’t matter how big or small you think your situation is… it matters to Him. He wants to set you free. He wants to hear from you.
Take a breath… pray, and give it all to Him. Let go and let God take control.
