During times like this it's easy to loose our peace of mind. All those little, and big, worries rush in and consume our thoughts. It's hard to concentrate on anything else. It would be easy if it were only for a couple of hours that we felt eaten alive by our worries but sometimes it can go on for days and maybe even weeks. Meaningful words spoken by friends and family help temporarily but then we are right back to our worrying. It's like a faucet constantly drip in the middle of the night. Drip.... Drip..... Drip. It wears us down to the point of exhaustion. Honestly though, the thing about worry is that most of the time, what we worry about never happens or doesn't happen as badly as we thought it would. It has taken a while but I am learning to trust rather than worry. To trust that God will cause things to work out, even if it doesn't work out like I thought it should; to trust that He will use it for a greater good. To trust that God knows exactly what He is doing and the outcome will be favorable. The thing about trust, is that it brings peace, peace of mind; peace of heart. If you are eaten up with something you have been worrying about, try to trust that God will work this out for you. Trust means to stop striving, fall back on Him and find that He will catch you in His everlasting arms of mercy. I sometimes tell myself "there is nothing I can do about this, nothing I can do to change this situation", it's God's time to shine in this crisis and do what He does best, work out what I can not possibly do.
