Proverbs 14: 30 says, ” A heart at peace gives life to the body.”
I have personally experienced this truth. When I am struggling with things that are rocking my world. My mind is focused on what I need to fix and what isn’t going right, and then I can’t sleep because my mind is racing which eventually leads to my energy being zapped.
Why is it that instead of just trusting God and asking Him to help us, we stress and stew over what goal we haven’t yet achieved? For years, I have tried to solve problems and fix situations. I called it commitment to excellence and the ability to set goals to achieve a desired result, but slowly and surely God has been teaching me the art of letting go and giving things to Him. This has lighten my spirit and lifted my soul. The burden is no longer on me! As I have released the things that I can’t control, I have noticed that I am sleeping better, I am more relaxed, and have more energy than I ever had before. I should have done this long ago! I am finally letting go of the things I can’t control!
