Let Go and Let God

As a child growing up, whenever I was worried about something, my mother use to always say, "Girl, don't worry about it. Just let go and let God."

As a kid, I didn't really understand what she meant. Let go and let God do what? Let God worry about it? Naw, I couldn't do that. I couldn't trust that He would worry about it as much as I would. I knew He had tons of other people that he had to worry about too, so I figured He wouldn't give my "worry" the amount of attention that it needed.

So, I continued to worry.

How could you just "let it go" as Mom suggested?

If it was something I had to worry about, I had to worry about it, right?

I mean, if I had a really important test, I had to worry about whether or not I was going to pass-especially since I didn't spend enough time studying.

As I grew older, there were other things to worry about, but still, I felt I had to worry about them for myself because God wouldn't give it the appropriate attention that I would-worrying.

I worried about whether or not that boy would really like me for who I am; I worried about whether I would have the money to hang out this weekend; I worried if I had enough to cover my car note if I bought those shoes that I simply HAD to have. I worried about whether or not I would be able to hold my tongue and not cuss my boss out when she started to get on my nerve; I worried about whether or not my hair would stay tight the entire day.

But no matter what I worried about I always would hear my mother, in the back of my mind, saying, "Don't worry. Let go and let God."

The other day I was on the phone with my mother and she was worried about not hearing from my brother. I have a brother that is sort of "out there" and he is the source of a lot of worrying for my parents.

But as she was telling me how she doesn't understand why he won't return her calls and why he doesn't stop by to see her and how worried she is that he isn't eating properly and worried that he might be in the streets, I heard her words come out of my mouth, back to her ears. "Mommy, don't worry. Let go and let God."

She laughed and said, "Yeah, you are right. There is no need to worry. I'm praying. I'm praying every day. As of right now, I'm turning it over to God. He'll take care of him."

Then it clicked.

There is never any reason to worry about anything. Worry does nothing but cause anxiety.

If there is a problem that you are worried about STOP worrying. Just say a little prayer and let go of the problem and let God work it out. Then, trust, with all your heart that God will solve the problem, or bring the answer to you, or make the situation go away.

Whatever you are worried about becomes bigger the more you worry about it.

From this moment on, make the conscious decision that you will not worry ever again. Just let go and let God. Trust and everything will turn out right.
