let go and let God/adversity/in times of trouble

9 years ago

When I let go and let God things are more peaceful and go more
smoothly. Lately I've been trying to control other people and today I
realize it's made me frustrated and exhausted. I've learned I have no
control over other people and trying is a waste of time that I could be
using to enjoy my life. I've been trying to change my mom and have her
take responsibility for the bills but I've given up on that. I made a
decision today that I am going to do whatever it takes to change myself
and to take care of me and do what is best for me. Today I am letting
go and letting god.

Thanks for letting me share
Thanks for all the support my online friends

ourselves. That's the whole purpose of spiritual community. Linda

God, I feel the darkness encompassing me. The burden is
so heavy to bear. I thank you that you have promised to take this
weight from me. I will surrender it to you, leaving it in your loving
hands. Amen

Light for my path for women

God, I thank you that
you are my source when I am needy. you are my help in times of trouble.
I don't have to be afraid of what troubles may come upon me because you
are my hiding place and my source of protection. You are my strength
when I feel weak in the face of opposition. Help me to rest in your
safety of your protection and look to you for everything I need in good
and difficult times.

When something happens that is disturbing
to me, I look to you to turn it around for good. Even though what
happens may be a big disappointment to me, it is also a great
opportunity to invite you to turn it into something positive. I look to
you now and ask that you would bring good out of the things that
trouble me today. May i never be brought to shame by the trouble in my
life.
