When things happen to me I want to stop trying to fix them and ask myself, how is God using this to make me more like him. I mean, sometimes things suck, but really in the end everything is going to be alright. Worrying and striving is pointless. It doesn't change anything except out attitudes, and it doesn't change them in a good way.
I am a pretty trusting person by nature. From when I was tiny I believed that Jesus was my Savior. I know that is true. However, I struggle so much to try to make my life perfect and worry free that I worry myself to death. (Not literally, yet.) If I know that everything is going to be alright, that God has my days numbered, that worrying is pointless, then why do I do it?
