I don’t know all of the outcomes
Don’t know what happens tomorrow
But when that ocean of doubt comes
Don’t let me drown in my sorrow
And don’t let me stay at the bottom
I feel like this hole is too deep to climb
I’ve been lookin’ for a way out
But I’ll settle for a peace of mind
Picking up the pieces of my life and hopin’ that I’ll put together something right. But tell God I’mma need a whole lotta hope keeping it together. (Lacrae ft Tori Kelly “fight a little longer” 2017)
How many can relate? Sometimes we become so consumed with doubt we tend to lose our purpose. We become stuck and we’re looking for a way out and can’t seem to find one. We’re try so hard to control the situation and grasping at any attempt to fix the problem. And where does that leave us? Stressed, depressed, full of anxiety. But, don’t stay stuck there. Get control of yourself and start picking up the pieces to get yourself back on track. Stay hopeful and know that God has a plan for you. And it’s not to hurt you but to prosper you.
He doesn’t want to see you worrying and depressed. He wants you to trust him that he will give you the strength you need to get through the challenges in your life. He will give you a way out. If you let him. But it’s not going to happen by you trying to control everything. Because you can’t control everything all by yourself. You dont know the outcome of every situation no matter how much you plan it out.
Sometimes during these moments of doubt we’ve already made up our minds and we don’t give God a chance to talk to us. We want to do what we want to do, not what God wants us to do. We’re unwilling to listen because our hearts are hardened. But, when you have a closed mind how is he able to talk to you? He can’t.
Don’t let pride, fear, bitterness hold you back and stop trying to figure it all out on your own. Just pray. Ask God for strength and courage or whatever it is you need at the moment. And trust he will answer your prayer.
Talk it over:
- Where can you find encouragement when you are discouraged?
- Do you trust God to provide for you?
- How does prayer change you?
