Square Peg ● Round Hole







It is a human symptom to worry.  Worry about a situation.  Worry about the outcome.  It is a vicious cycle that can inhabit our being and take away our comfort, faith, and serenity.   I could take the tiniest scenario and create this huge situation.  It took on a life of its own.  Worrying does nothing, but strip away my trust in God.

Recently, I had two opportunities to test out my new outlook. Both were health issues.  One with my youngest and then one with me.  They presented me with an option.  I could completely allow those situations to occupy my mind or I could simply trust.  After all, the reality is that worrying has never changed the outcome of ANY situation.   In my heart, I have learned that God has this all planned out already.   He really doesn’t need me to micro manage his job.  I knew that everything was going to be fine regardless of any medical diagnosis.  It allowed me the freedom to not lose my sanity to worry.

You see, if I allow worry to consume me, then I lose hours, days, even weeks or more of my life.  I am no longer present to receive all the really good stuff happening all around me.  I have planned out the outcome before I have the answers.

It’s hard not to dive into fear.   When I feel out of control, grabbing onto fear, allows me to feel that I am at least doing something.  If it is big enough to worry about, then maybe I need to pray about it.  Today, I want and need to be full of faith.
