Last week was again very trying for me and my Faith. With bill collectors abound and pressure from home to get "a real job," I was ready to run for the hills to never be seen again.
My problem is I let my worries get the best of me sometimes. I can't seem to only focus on the day's problems. I think about weeks of problems. But there's a verse that crept into my spirit the other day when I was yet again lamenting about my dilemmas: "Sufficient for the day is its own trouble" ( Matthew 6:34).
So, guess what I did? I let the worries of tomorrow go and focused on that day and guess what happened? God heard my prayer for help. He sent someone I hadn't heard from in over a year to help me.
You see, I am slowly beginning to truly realize that when God says yes, it's time to let the drama go. I can't take care of everything, but God can...when He's ready. And we mortals must be patient.
This week, let it all go. Work on the day's trouble and keep in prayer about it. God will hear you, and even answer you.
