All week this message has been playing in my heart:
“Stop trying to fix, what God is trying to mould”
For awhile now, I’ve been struggling and stressing about a loved one who has really been going through it, and no matter how much I pray or reach out and give advice, I still wasn’t at peace with the outcome.
I wasn’t able to control or fix this situation, and it was actually getting worse.
None of my advice was working, God wasn’t answering my prayers for this situation, and I wasn’t functioning mentally because of it.
Until I stepped back and remembered, that I too went through similar seasons in my youth.
It then brought me to the realisation that, had I not been through the dark times back then, I wouldn’t have turned to God the way I have now.
Meaning, maybe I need to stop trying to play God and let “Jesus fix it”.
I need to remove myself from the situation and give it to God!
You see, sometimes we want to help fix others problems and issues so bad, that we end up creating issues and problems for ourselves, because it wasn’t our business to fix in the first place.
I know this is long, but I really felt like there was someone out there going through something similar that needed this and I couldn’t sleep until I got it out of my mind (1:38am) 😅 haha
Sometimes we don’t always have to step up, sometimes we just got to step back and let God do His thang🙏
