Why worry? Drown all your worries in prayers and be still. Yes, just don’t worry. Trust God. It is simple and plain. Yet, you worry about many things. Why is it difficult to do the simple - Take all your worries and cares to God. Often life is puzzling and doing the simple can be tough when in difficult situation. But more difficult is to be still. You know that God can do all things. Nothing is impossible for Him. He can answer your prayer. So, you have said your prayers. Amen to that! But you don't really believe all your worries and troubles will go away in a jiffy. Do you? Trusting God takes a back seat and you continue to fret and worry.

You were making merry and had a wonderful time. But, after the thrill is gone, that little niggling worrying thought creeps right back into your sub-concious mind, needlessly. There are everyday problems. There are bad times and difficult situations. Life is all about - the good, the bad and the ugly. But, when in trouble, all you need to do is be still.

To be still is to trust God to take complete control of your situations. How difficult is that. You cannot believe that things will change or that your problem could be easily solved. You can’t help worrying. So, you continue to worry, hopelessly. It's diffiocult to be still. You are restless. What will happen? What can happen? What is meant to happen will happen. No matter what you do or what you wish, what will be will be.

So does that mean you don’t have to do anything?

You forgot. You must trust God completely. Trusting God is the key. After all, faith can move mountains. Do you believe so? Why is it so difficult to believe it? Why is it difficult to trust God?

You can do anything. You have the power, the money and all the riches. You have done all you can. But you cannot stop worrying because you forgot to leave all your cares upon God. You have given up or maybe not. But you are unable to give up on worrying.

You are angry and disappointed because you have failed again and yet again. You are capable and able. But things aren’t working out the way you want it. You forgot the old saying - Man proposes, God disposes. For God has a better plan. Believe that God has a better and bigger plan for you in all that chaos. God is there even in the black pool that seems to be churning on and on. He is working on it to fulfill h=His plans for you. 

The plans of man built with his Ego and pride are many, yet are futile before God’s bigger plan for him.

Although we hope for the best, often we, as lesser mortals, are happy to settle for lesser and smaller things in life. But God gives us the best - which we often take it for granted. Yes. You have had a raw deal. You did work hard all your life. You may or may not deserve what you asked for. But you got more than you asked for. Count your blessings. See, you are blessed with more than you could think of.

So, Be still. When troubled and faced with problems and difficult situation in life, when helpless, all we need to do is stand still. Leave it all to the Almighty to do the needful.

Step back. Stop struggling. Make way for your creator to take hold of every areas of your lives. Let Him take the wheel, steer your life around as he wills and let His amazing Grace carry you through all the way. Be still. Do not worry. Trust God.
