Many times, we have problems in our lives. That’s why we call it life, right? A loved one passes away, someone gets sick, we get sick ourselves, we don’t have as much money as we’d like, or maybe you are just having a bad hair day. Things get hard sometimes, and that’s just how it goes.
When I was younger, I progressively throughout my life became more and more anxious over the smallest of things. Finally, I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. I realize many people believe anxiety disorders are made up and we can just make them “go away”, but that is a different argument for a different day. I used to get nervous to go to school, terrified that my friends were mad at me, terrified that my parents were mad at me, you name it and it made me nervous.
I tried medication, but all it did was make me tired. I hated it. I didn’t even really feel any different, just too tired to care about anything. My mother always told me to put my anxieties and fears in The Lord’s hands. I’ll be honest, I did not know what she meant by this at first. I thought I had to deal with everything myself. And I believed that for much of my life.
My turning point was when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) went to basic training. I was distraught. Probably more distraught than I should have been, but I was so scared. H had become such a large part of my life and he was left with little to no communication every week for five months. I had so many of his belongings all around me, and putting them into boxes for storage until he came home was incredibly hard. When my Mom and all of my friends finally gave me some time to myself, I sat on my floor and cried. I didn’t know what else to do but pray. I prayed and prayed and before I knew it 45 minutes went by. I had no more tears to cry, and somehow, I felt at peace. Four little words made all of the difference.
Thy Will Be Done…
I accepted the fact that what was going to happen, would happen. God’s will was going to form the rest of my life. My relationship with God changed that day. I was always a Christian, but that day I felt more connected to Him than ever. I told him my problems, my worries, and what I was sad about. I gave it all to him. I said Thy Will Be Done, and let it be.
My faith changed that day. I now trust Him with my entire life. Any time I feel anxious I give it to Him. When I question my ability to live my new life I give it to Him. When I feel lonely I give it to Him. When I feel my World is crashing down around me and I feel that my husband can be taken away from me at any moment I give it to Him.
Trust in Him to give you strength to get you through any problem you may face. Pray away your anxieties, your problems, your worries. Only when you truly trust in His power and His will, will you feel that peace that I felt that day. Live your life through Him and those four little words.
Thy Will Be Done.
