As a young adult living independently, I’ve been feeling the burden of responsibilities in the recent years. Even as I spend on my hobbies or travels, I always need to make sure that I prioritize rent, electricity, water, transportation and food.
It can get worrisome at times, so I make sure to work hard. I keep on working until I get too busy for my social and even spiritual life. Has this ever happened to you?
There are times when we try to control our own lives, and push ourselves too much. When we let go, we realize that God has been with us all along.
Today, I am reminded that God will always take care of me. After all, how many times has He provided for my needs already? Sometimes, help comes along when I least expect it. I still need to work hard to earn enough for my needs, but I shouldn’t sacrifice my relationship with others, especially with God.
At the same time, we may be overwhelmed with emotional burdens or issues around us. It frustrates us, even causing sleepless nights sometimes. We need to learn which things we can control and what’s beyond that.
We can only do so much. We should do what’s within our capability, and leave the rest to God.
As we bring all our anxiety and worry up to Him in prayer, we will receive a sense of peace that’s unbelievably comforting despite any circumstance.
1. Is there something that’s been bothering you lately?
2. Have you talked to God about it?
3. Take some time to reflect on what you can do, and lift all your anxiety to God in prayer.
P.S. I made a Daily Warriors Meditation Music playlist on YouTube today, and I hope that you can use it for your reflections or devotionals. You can also use it as a lullaby. It’s so relaxing.
