Hi mama! Today, I’m sharing a poem based on my experience regarding anxiety and God’s deliverance. This poem focuses on the amazing blessing we experience when we surrender to God’s will and stop striving on our own.
Indeed, often anxiety comes about from a focus on self, instead of surrender to God. When we hold on to our will and our abilities, instead of trusting in the Creator of the Universe, who is also our Heavenly Father.
So, here goes:
I trudge up the hill
Bearing my burdens with a groan
My heart buckling under the weight
Of carrying a load alone
The pressure becomes intolerable
I relinquish my desire to control
My soul cries out in despair:
“Lord, I need you. Take my all.”
In that sweet moment of surrender
The eyes of my heart see afresh
Your glory and Your splendour
Breaking every fear of the flesh
Then as a crashing wave
Peace inundates my soul
It permeates my every thought
Making me new. Making me whole.
I’d like to encourage you today to turn to God when you’re anxious. Examine yourself and find the situations, the people or the circumstances that you’re trying to hold control over, and release those to God’s will. Surrender to Him. Let His will prevail. When you do, I can guarantee your heart will find peace again.
As it says in God’s word: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6, 7)
In the verses above, it’s clear that when we present our requests to God with a heart of thanksgiving and worship, and we totally surrender to His will, God’s peace, which transcends understanding, will guard us.
