Sometimes I find myself stressed and very worried. It eats away inside of me and I even have panic attacks when I allow myself to think about it for a long time. I feel so helpless and so small at times. I feel so lost. Then I remember my Savior, my sweet Jesus Christ. I can almost hear him say, "Charlene, have a little faith in me."
I know I should. The disciples also faced a scary situation when they were on the boat with Jesus. The winds were strong and violent, the waves were getting higher and the boat was rocking so hard that they were convinced they were all going to sink and drown! They cried out to Jesus, "help us! Don't you care that we're drowning?!" Jesus sighed, got up and rebuked the storm. Suddenly, everything was so still. Jesus turned to the disciples and told them that they had such little faith.
I feel like that a lot of the times. It seems like my problems are too big and too out of my control. They remind me of that big and scary storm. We forget that God is bigger than all of our problems! How little must our petty little problems seem to the Lord! He created the universe and everything in this world belongs to him. The disciples marveled and said, "who is he, for even the wind and the waves obey him!" And that's MY God!
I have to remember at times like these to give it all to God and just literally GIVE him my problems! How do we do that?? when we STOP worrying! Stop overthinking it! Stop stressing out! Some analyzing every little detail! Stop tossing and turning at night! S-T-O-P and put a smile in your face. God is in control! What a relief!!!
He leadeths me besides still waters and he restores my soul!
