Trust in God: Do Not Worry Over Dependencies and Helplessness

It’s hard to enjoy life when you’re worried about something or many things (obviously!).  Pressure from within and from others to do something about what you worry about makes the situation more stressful.

The solution is to do something about that which worries you.  Worrying about a concern worsens with inaction.  You can reduce the stress by doing something – anything – about it.  And whatever it is you need to do, do it NOW!  Delaying any action will only prolong the worry and stress; get things done so that you can move on.

The situation becomes more difficult, and thus more worrisome, when you have dependencies on others, and you have little or no control or influence over such.  You’re in a precarious position if you’re accountable and responsible for something whose outcome is dependent on other people or factors out of your control.  The only thing worse than feeling worried, is feeling worried and helpless.

When you’ve done all that you could, and there’s nothing more you can do at this point, then the only thing you can do is to trust in God that He will see you through your present crisis.  Trust in God that somehow, and in some way, things are going to be alright.

It’s easier said than done but it has to be done: Do not worry; trust in God instead.

Eternal God, in Whom mercy is infinite and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we may not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your most Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
