So what does it really mean when I say I am leaving something in God’s hands? Does it mean I am trusting Him to take care of things? Yes. Does it mean my hope is in Him? Yes.
Does it mean I get my own hands out of the way?
Hmm… that’s a little bit more difficult.
I can keep my conscious mind under control with this pretty well… choosing deliberately and repeatedly to leave everything up to the Lord… to trust that He loves me and will work everything out for my good and His glory.
However, it’s the subconscious mind that is not really listening to me when I’m trying to sleep at 3 am and that part of my brain continues to troubleshoot, look for answers, figure out the solution to the problem.
So again I put it back in God’s hands. At 3 am. And 4 am and every hour on the hour that I wake up worrying, trying not to worry, trying not to control.
Because in reality, whoever has it in hand has it in their control. Right? Under control.
Once again today I choose to give each one of those pesky unsolved problems back to God. I wrestled in the night, trying to get my hands on it… I give it back. Right now and every time that I think about it today.
