I CAN’T SLOW DOWN… MY MIND IS GOING A MILLION MILES A MINUTE. I FEEL WROTHLESS, UNLOVED, AND BEATEN DOWN. MY LIFE IS A MESS… I CAN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT…
If that paragraph describes how you feel in anyway or your life is even more chaotic than that, please soak in what I’m about to share with you. Christ can and will remove the chaos and replace it with His peace. We can find this promise in Philippians 4:6-7 “6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
To gain this peace from the chaos you have to hand everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, over to God. Give Him the big stuff and the little stuff, the situation and the people, the lies, and even the feelings and emotions. Hand over everything, and He will give you the peace that surpasses all understanding.
I want to make clear real quick that God is not an emotional dump. You can’t hand Him all your trash and just walk away. That’s not how it works. You have to have a relationship with Him in the good times and the bad times. God’s not your therapist; He’s your Heavenly Father. Also, you will have to keep handing some things back over to God. Just trust Him.
So are you ready for my dare? I dare you to hand everything that’s bothering you over to God. Start small if you have too. Make a list. You’ll be surprised at how much you are holding on to. So ready, set, GO! Will you join me in this life long process of trading junk for peace? Will you take the dare? Will you believe?
