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!
