“Give it to God and go to sleep”
Isn’t that easier said than done?
We all have those issues that no matter how much we say, “God’s got this” we still have that flesh mindset that maybe we need to take care of it ourselves. And this rings true more when we are in bed trying to rest, it seems. All that worry, stress, and confusion comes pouring into our brain. But God says do not worry…
Matthew 6:34 states, “Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
We may not be able to stop trouble in the world, or trouble in our lives, but one thing we do not have to do is worry about it.
He wants us to go to Him when we are in a dark place or just having a bad day, He loves us THAT much. And it’s never too late to reach out to him. No matter where you are in your life: If you are a new Christian or a seasoned one, we all face challenges.
Psalms 46:1-3 says…
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
So unclench that jaw, drop those shoulders, relax that brow, and breathe. He’s got you!
I pray this helps someone today that might be experiencing something like this.
Always remember…never let your cup become empty. ☕️
Have a blessed day !
