Morning Musing Over Coffee - Lining Up My Problems

credit: Michelle Meiklejohn

It's not easy to take my problems one at a time when they refuse to get in line.
~ Ashleigh Brilliant

 I laughed when I read this but there is also a grain of truth in it. Sometimes I think I have a lot of problems and I keep trying to line them up in a way that makes sense to me. Then I plan to solve them in a way that makes sense to me.

There's just one problem with this idea.

What makes sense to me quite often does not make sense to God. And what I see as a problem He often sees as a learning experience, not a problem at all, or even a blessing.

So I guess it's time for me to stop trying to line up my problems and take them on one aat a time, but instead to pray about my problems and then leave them in His very capable hands.

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
