Letting God Take Control

Right now in my life I feel like I'm struggling. I don't know what God is teaching me with the things I'm going through right now. I don't know what the purpose is for some of the situations I am facing. I don't know what is best to do. I feel like certain things have been overtaking my life recently and has been impacting my relationship with God. I find my time with God is often spent thinking of other things instead of trying to spend time with Him.


I feel like lately I've been more focused on other things than God. I've been thinking more of myself and less of others and less of God. I wish I could get in a different mindset and focus on things that really matter and off of things that make me feel happy. I want more to my life than pleasures and happiness. I want my life to have purpose and be an inspiration of God to others.

Right now I feel like I don't know where God wants me. I don't know which direction to go. I feel lost and uncertain of what is best. I feel like my heart and my head are torn. I feel like there is a battle within me.

Sometimes we are in places that we don't understand. We find ourselves looking at our mess and wondering what we should do. We ask questions and wonder where we should go- what we should do. Sometimes the problems we face don't have a direct answer. It's not black and white. It's hard to determine what is best. These are the times when it is hard to make a decision and have all the pressure on our choice. Sometimes it's hard giving those choices up to God and asking Him to take control. It's so hard to give something over to Him when we want the control. We may know what we want, but it's hard leaving it up to God to make the decision of what He thinks is best.

If you are struggling with an issue right now and don't know which way is best spend a little while just praying about it. Maybe talk to someone about it. Prayer is something we take forgranted and don't put a lot of thought into. There is so much power in our prayers! When we ask, God will listen and He will help us when the time is right. Ask God to lead you and show you what you should do. Also, if you find your time with God is being overtaken by something else- maybe ask God for help to keep you focused and close to Him without other things getting in the way.

Matthew 7:7
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

  3. hi britt, your words are very inspiring, ilove to read them over and over. it's funny coz everything about your blogs feels like it something about me and my relationship with God. You expressed all the things that in my mind. I could actually relate to everything that its written in your blog. Sometimes I wanted to talked to him and pray but my mind tends to be so messed up I didn't know where to start, but through reading your blog help me to understand myself more and God. Its like im in a very down side of my life I could feel the struggle in the first part of your blog then in the end I realised that it always end up with God that he is always there that there is hope, all we have to do is trust him and eventually everything make sense to me. I thank God for letting you become an instrument to inspire others especially those who are also have different struggles in life. keep it up and be strong always coz God is with us always. ^^,
