Have you ever had one of those weeks when absolutely nothing goes your way? Well, that has been my week. Yesterday I just lost it. I had finally had enough and I couldn't take it anymore. And as a woman what do I do? I cry. Now, it takes a lot for me to get to that point which just shows how awful this week has been. And when I finally broke down yesterday, at work, I had a coworker pull me aside to see what was wrong. I started ranting about all the things that have not been going well, the people that seemingly did not do their job correctly, and how I just felt stuck. I was waiting for this very elaborate response from this particular coworker and all I received was "God will take care of it." For many that is enough to calm them down, but yesterday it was not for me and I started to wonder why.
"God will take care of it." That is a challenging phrase to accept especially for someone, like myself, that enjoys being in control. My first instinct is always to take charge and fix whatever the issue is. Well, this week no matter what I did nothing fixed the issues and only seemingly made them worse! Isn't it funny, how such an easy phrase to say, is so hard to do and believe? What if we really did wholeheartedly believe that God will take care of it? Wouldn't life be so much easier?
It is one of the greatest challenges of the christian life to give control over to God, but one of the greatest rewards when you do. How are you in the little ways giving your day over to God? Are you praying? Are you asking God to be a part of your life? I will be honest at times I forget too, but when I do take an active role in asking Him, He has never failed me.
So, today is a new day. A day given over to God. Anything can happen.
