If I have time to wallow in this despair and fear, I have time to pray. It’s my choice. Do I let my mind wander to judge and criticize what everyone is doing wrong, or do I let my thoughts go to my heart where God resides?
Let go and let God.
Goggle the phrase and you’ll get a plethora of responses. Here’s one to get you started, but all you need to do is close your eyes, or take a walk, and be in your own prayerful way.
Here's the best road map I can give you when you want to learn how to surrender to God and let go:
Realize you're human and you don't have all the control, no matter how awesome and capable you are.
Take a moment. ...
Admit that you don't have to have all the answers, all the time. ...
Take a deep breath.
