I am also trying hard to let go of my need to solve all the world’s problems. I am struggling to give things to God, and it is causing me great anxiety, but why? It is most definitely a character flaw that I have had for as long as I can remember. I am a bit of a control freak, and as I get older, I just cannot keep up the pace. So I am asking God, “Would you work it out? Your plan is flawless, and you’re in charge anyway! Please free me from the desire to fix everyone and everything.” And I know that a)there is a perfect order to His plan, b) some of us will be joyous and some will be royally disappointed and c) it’ll be ok.
So every day, I must ask myself, who is in control, me or God? And every day I must trust Him with all of it. Yes. ALL.OF.IT. Including the fall out and consequences. He has that, too.
Romans 8:28 says just what I need to hear about this….
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
