From Worrier to Warrior

“My worries are few because my blessings are many”

I’ve heard this phrase too many times to count but I’ve never actually believed it till about a month ago. So many of us get so focused on our worries, that we don’t take the time to look around us. To take the time and see all the blessing that surround us.

When you wake up in the morning, what is your first thought?

For way to long, I would wae up and the first word that would cross my mind was ‘ughh.’ I would mentally start making a list in my mind of all the things I had to do that day, all the problems that I had to find a solution too. But that is a completely wasted and pointless mindset to wake up to. When we wake up, our first thought should be:

‘Thank you God for waking me up this morning. Thank you for allowing me to live another day, to see another sunrise.’

But yet, so little of us actually do this. So little of us focus on seeing the little things, and instead try to solve all the big problems, thinking that we actually can handle them on our own when it reality, it’s far from it.

Have you ever met anyone who’s afraid to admit that they need help or someone who just never asks anyone for anything? Yea, I rarely admit it but, I’m one of those people. I’m the type of person who will complicate the easiest task when I can’t figure it out because I don’t ask for help. This is one of my biggest weaknesses. I don’t like when others perceive me as someone

who is weak. This is causes a problem in my relationship with Christ because He is my Father

and I should be able to come to Him about anything and everything. Sometimes I

feel as though I bother God just a little bit too much compared to the average person. For a long time, I felt as though I couldn’t ask God for help because there was always something I would need His help with. I got to a point in my life where I just stopped asking for His help in everything. But didn’t

Jesus Himself tell us to come to Him when we were weary and needed rest?

 

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

I think that was my mistake, I stopped asking God for His help in everything. Now, looking back, I can see that the best thing I could ever do was ask God for His help in everything. Because with God’s help, He would help me out of the situation in the way that He wanted, and He would

teach me and show me wanted He wanted me to learn out of that specific situation.

When I started doing it all on my own, I couldn’t see the big picture. I couldn’t see what God was

trying to teach me while I was in that situation. By doing things on my own, I just caused myself unnecessary worry and stress.
We need to realize and remember that God is in control of this situation and every other one to come. He is bigger than all of our problems and worries but we need to learn to surrender to Him. Leave it all at His feet and trust that He got the situation under control.
