I want to be the kind of person, who can fix anything for anyone. The problem with that, is that I am not God. Therefore it is not possible.
I have vowed to fix everything within my power, and them let God handle everything I cannot.
I want people to like me; but I also want people to know that I am real. I cannot genuinely tell someone how it is. I have a hard time letting go. 90% of the time my guard is up. My children need love, protection, and guidance. My family needs me to have the ability to handle anything. And I want to be that person for them. I want to be able to fix everything!
Unfortunately that’s not really how things work. But I have come to realize that I can do all things through Christ who provides my strength. I know I have covered that scripture before. But the meaning of if it goes behind what most of us are even capable of comprehending.
In my head everything overlaps. I overthink almost every obstacle & choice that plop into my lap.
I care too much about what strangers think of me. And I wish I knew how to handle situations that are out of my comfort zone with better ease.
There is so much advice I am willing to take.
There is so much “advice” I want to be able to share.
There are so many stories that apply. There is so much I want to show you. There is so much I want to try to explain.
Judgements and criticism are really, really hard to get over. Mean hearted people are hard to understand. Then you have the hundreds of situations that just plain suck.
“Let Go and let God”; is a great tip I have heard from many amazing people.
If it was easy to remember then I’m sure everything would be so much easier to adjust to.
It being hard is no question. But how do you go about it.
Most things I think about daily, can’t be changed. At least not in my range of ability. That is very hard to admit and it’s very hard to cope with.
“I want to fix it, I want to fix it now”
That doesn’t actually change anything, it just strains your ability to stress yourself out.
Not to sound dramatic but when there are things I cannot change, my chest will literally start to hurt. My heart gets heavy and it all weighs me down. I hate feeling lost and scared. I hate not knowing what to do. The only answer I have in moments like that is to pray. To pray and read scriptures that remind me of the promises that God gave us.
He promised he would take care of our troubles and doubts , if we surrender them to him.
And I can understand how that sounds silly to most people. Especially to the people who don’t believe.
I believe we were given the ability to let it all go, we were also given the choice of whether or not to do so.
We have to make a choice, every day of our lives. To either move forward, or dwell on what happened yesterday. We can stay up night after night, trying to work up a senario to fix the thing we simply can change.
We can not control how other people are, we can’t control how they act or feel or what they say. We are responsible for US; And our children but only to an extent. (Will cover more on that later if necessary)
It’s just so much harder these days to remember that we are fighting a battle that has already been won. Not to sound “religious” or anything. But God gave us a choice. I believe if we give our concerns to God and focus on what’s ahead then we can get farther away from what’s behind us.
It is ok to make mistakes. It is ok to mess things up. Accidents happen. We are only human. Even though, that is a phrase I have strong feelings about; It is true.
My point at the moment, is that it wastes too much energy to dwell on things that we won’t ever be able to change. Pray seriously about each situation that is concerning you. Then seek verses to accompany the belief that we can overcome everything. I can guarantee you will notice a giant weight lifted the minute you “let it go”.
I am sure that a good amount of you think I am crazy. But I used to suffer from things such as anxiety, fear, and disbelief of anything “helpful”. It was so hard to get where I am today. It is also an ongoing battle that I have to fight daily.
But I know in my heart it is worth the fight.
I know in my heart it is a battle that I can overcome.
I believe that our God, our Father in heaven, has our back. We must constantly remember that we are warriors, We are children of God, and we are overcomers.
