Give It to God

As a teenager, when I became overwhelmed by enormous challenges or high-stakes decisions, my mother taught me the merits of putting pen to paper to gain perspective. When I was uncertain whether to take specific classes or which job to pursue, or how to cope with the frightening realities of adulthood, I learned her habit of writing out the basic facts and the possible courses of action with their likely outcomes. After pouring my heart onto the page, I was able to step back from the problem and view it more objectively than my emotions allowed. Just as recording my thoughts on paper offered me fresh perspective, pouring my heart out to God in prayer helps us gain His perspective and remind us of His power.

  1. Give it to Jesus and leave it there. Don’t go back and try to touch it.
