on finding peace

There is no hiding, or denying the fact, that I can be a bit of a control freak. When I feel stressed out or when there is a lot going on, my natural tendency is to grip tighter. Plan a little more. Make more lists. And while I think planning and lists are a great in moderation, it can be easy to fall into an exhausting trap.

I read once that excessive planning is our human reaction to trying to take control back from God and lacking faith in His goodness. And while that may not be our intent, there is some definite truth to that. But what a relief to know that God has it all under control. That regardless of what is going on in our lives, whatever mess we find ourselves in, we can find peace in knowing that God sees it all and far more than we are even capable of seeing.

So wherever your find yourself today, I hope you can find some peace in knowing that God has your back, so have a little faith.

What a beautiful post this is! I definitely need this in my time of life right now. I know as well that God has a plan for us and can see our whole plane when we can only see some of it. Everything he has a do in our life is a reason. I am glad I found your blog through "Lets be Friends" link up.
