Trust/Anxiety

Tears pouring down my face. I want the answers. I need them now. Do you see me here, do you hear my prayers? I don’t know how much more of this I can take. The uncertainty, the unknown, the pain. What if they don’t figure things out for months, or years? What if I’m okay, then what will people think? What if I’m not, then what will they think? What if I’m okay and I’m worrying everyone? But if I'm not? What am I supposed to do? What am I not supposed to do? Why can’t I know the answers now?
(If you don’t know the backstory to this, long story short I’ve been struggling with my stomach pain for months, accompanied by other things.)
Fear. Fear. Fear. It’s become my life, or at least, that’s how the enemy makes it seem. I’m so freaked out because I don’t understand. Anyone else? Maybe? It’s because I keep trying to depend on myself. I need to give it to God, and I don’t mean, “Okay God here it is but keep it where I can see it.” you know? I’m still on this journey learning how to trust him, and If by any chance anyone has felt like I have, know you aren’t alone. Would you like to join me on this journey? This will be my topic of writing for the next month, Lord willing. Let’s start off with one verse to study, shall we?

Philippians 4:6 - “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

God bless. Keep going.

REMEMBER

To the one who feels alone. Like you’ve been given way more than you could possibly bear. To the one that doesn’t think they are going to make it. To the one that feels like their life is spinning completely out of control and don’t know where to go from here. Don’t lose hope. I don’t know exactly what you’re going through, but I do know that there’s a reason I felt the need to write this. So I pray that this brings hope, light, love, and encouragement to anyone that needs to hear/read this right now. It may feel like everything you’ve ever hoped for is falling apart at the seams right now. I know you feel lost, confused, and broken. I know you’re tired. I know that this is extremely difficult, but you are going to get through this with Gods help. Don’t give up.

Like I did in my last post I’m going to share some lyrics first, then the song as well.

“In The Hands Of The Potter” by Casting Crowns

“My world is breaking me, your love is shaping me. And now the enemy is afraid of what you’re making me. (3x) And as I fall apart, come flood this desert heart. Fall like the rain, living water. And I know your way is best. Lord help me find my rest, and I’ll be the clay in the hands of the potter.”
