Finding Peace by Entrusting Life to God’s Will

This has been something that has been on my mind lately, and it is something that I am still learning about. Can we trust God with our lives? How do we trust God with our lives? Can trusting God actually give us peace?

It can be so easy to stress about the future and to worry about all that it is going to hold. It can be easy to stress about what we should be doing right now to make a better future for ourselves, and it can be easy to stress about all that we should have done in the past to create better lives for ourselves. Allowing God to take control of our lives and entrusting those lives to his will can help to eliminate some of our stress.

Can We Trust God with Our Lives?
Can we trust God to take care of our lives? Can we trust the one who made the world, who made us, to take care of us? The answer seems pretty simple. As scary as it might be to consider just what God might have us go through, we can trust him to take care of us and watch over our lives.

How Do We Trust God with Our Lives?
We all want to hold onto control when it comes to our lives. We don’t want to let anyone else dictate what happens to us, and we like to feel that we are in control of our own futures. Really, though, God is in control whether we choose to let go or not. Choosing to let go simply makes things easier on us.

Can Trusting God Actually Give Us Peace?
When we decide to give God control of our lives and when we ask for him to work them out according to his will, we can feel at peace. When we know that no matter what happens - good or bad - things are going to happen according to what will be best in the end, we can feel peace.

I love the song that Hillary Scott and the Scott Family released not too long ago. "Thy Will" talks about all of this, about letting go and allowing God to take control of our lives.
