Letting God Take Over

There are many things I am still learning as I walk with God. I love that I am still growing and a work in progress. One of those things I am still working on is turning ALL of my worries and concerns over to God. There are times I will give something to God but try to take it back. It is no wonder I still feel weighed down with no sense of peace.
Last night I turned something over to God completely. It was small but it doesn't matter if an issue is big or small, I knew God wanted to take it from me and when He did I felt peace.
This morning during my quiet time with God the following song was in my devotional, which was about turning things over to God so that I can have peace.  

What a Friend We Have in Jesus”:
“What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!”

That song is perfect because I need to always take everything to God in prayer. I need to let God take over everything that weighs me down so that I can be at peace. When I am not weighed down, I am a better mother, a better wife, a better friend, a better woman of God.

I don't know where you, my readers, are right now but if there is something you need to give over to God, do it. The sense of peace you will feel is amazing. I struggle with it, so if you struggle with surrendering everything to God, you aren't alone. Let's hold each other accountable and encourage one another to let God take over.
