Control the Thing You Can Control

This morning I was reading in Psalm 119. I noticed across the page, I had scribbled some notes a while back so I looked to see what I had written. Psalm 116:10-11 were underlined. They read:

I believed in you, so I said
"I am deeply troubled, LORD"
In my anxiety I cried out to you,
"These people are all liars!"

In the margin, I wrote:

"I cannot control what others do, I can control whether or not I take it to God."

  1. This is such a real statement. Realizing I have the option of carrying around my burdens and my pain or giving it to Him is something we seem to forget. Thank you for the reminder. He always cares and is always available to listen; He is also the only one that can take care of our broken heart.
