Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Sometimes things don't go the way I want them to go. I have had a tendency to get anxious, and take matters into my own hands and try to "make them work"! Usually, my efforts have made matters worse instead of better.
This time, I'm going to trust God. I will do all that I can possibly do with confidence and faith instead of worry and fear.

  I like what you said, and I liked Oprah's quote. I respect many of the good things she has done, but she is into a bunch of new age philosophy that one must sift through.

    I agree, it's one of the more difficult things to do in life, this stepping back and letting go and trusting.

    Thank you for your inspirational note - I copied it into my journal to hold on to this morning as I accept a commission into hospital chaplaincy that causes me fear at my inadequacy and yet confidence that the Lord goes before me and I am in His will for my life at this time in my life. Thanks for the confirmation this verse brings to me.

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing at all.

    Great blog! So often it's hard to just stop and trust in God. I do the same thing. But things work so much better when I do stop and let God be in control instead of beating myself to death trying to fix it myself.

    Yes, it's hard to give up that tendency of human nature to be in control, even when it's really not possible!

HGUS and blessings, my dear.

    Ask God to give us wisdom to change the things we can and now when we have to accept life as it is.
