Sometimes all the plans you had made and expectations you had are totally blown out of the water with just a few words. Boom. Instant tailspin. It was one of those days yesterday.

I have this hymn in my head, "Take it to the Lord in prayer." Here are the lyrics and click here to hear the music.  Hyms are so comforting...

What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge;
take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms he'll take and shield thee;
thou wilt find a solace there.
So, despite being blown out of the water, I'm doing my best to lay these troubles down at the feet of God and let Him carry these burdens. Did I say that was easy for a control freak? No, it isn't easy. But I'm trying - He's there waiting on me to trust in Him.
