please stop

I used to make everything so complicated.  Not on purpose, but it was just what I did.  I would over think and over analyze EVERYTHING. I just couldn’t help myself.  Little, insignificant things became huge issues or problems.  I used to think that I had to fix or solve everything.  Most of the time, I created the problem I thought I needed to fix.  If I didn’t hear from my friends, I would think they were mad at me.  If my husband was in a bad mood, I would think it was something I did.  If I had to punish my kids, I would convince myself that they hated me.  To say I was a control freak was an understatement!  That is no way to live!

I finally had to tell myself to “please stop!”  Well, I didn’t actually fix it myself…  I realized that I had to have faith, I had to know that God is in control of EVERYTHING.  It doesn’t matter what I do, everything will go according to His plan.

God’s plan…  I may not always understand what He’s doing.  Who am I kidding?  I very rarely understand why things are happening the way they are.  I just have faith and trust that He is going to work everything for my good.  It’s not always easy.  Just because I have faith, doesn’t mean that I’m never afraid.  I fear a lot of things, mostly the unknown, but knowing God is for me makes it so much easier.

I am so blessed that God can “uncomplicate” my life, even after I do everything in my power to complicate it!
