If you're anything like me, you like to be in control of everything! When I feel like I am losing control, I feel vulnerable, unsafe, and scared. My need to be in control is not so much about controlling people as it is controlling outcomes. I don't like not knowing how something will end. As a Christian, my need to be in control sometimes works against my faith. Because of this, I am learning how to let go and trust God. I found myself often overwhelmed and anxious because I didn't have the ability to control or change a situation. I have to tell myself often, "Ghia, it's out of your control! Let it go!" I am saying the same thing to you as well...let it go! Whatever it is that's weighing heavy on you or has you worrying, let it go! Letting go is not about giving up, but giving over control to God. Besides, who better to give your worries to than the omniscient one, the one who knows everything? We have to let God be God! Sit back and watch him work. He's got this!
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" Matthew 6:25-27 NIV
