Why do we as women put our mental and emotional health in jeopardy to fix something only God can fix?
Being a woman is already hard enough, we do a lot of things in life on our own because lets be honest, if we do not do it who will? We cook, clean, give birth to children knowing the risks and knowing the pain we will endure on a physical and mental level, we raise them and do most of the heavy lifting, we fight against what society tries to put on us, we fight to be treated equal not only in the work place but in life in general; all while trying to find time to practice self care. On top of all of that, you then add a woman’s natural reaction to fix things. Our maturity and our ability to see things others cannot see puts us in a space, where often times, we forget to stop trying to fix it and let God fix what we are trying to fix. We become so stressed out and emotionally off balance that we don’t even realize that God is trying to simply get our attention.
Don’t get me wrong, fixing things isn’t always a bad thing but when God is showing you that he wants you to stop and give it all to him; do just that. You cannot make anyone do right by you, you cannot change anyone’s mind or heart, you cannot force someone to see your worth, you cannot change your situation, and you cannot change that outcome of anything. People will project their issues on to you, treat you bad, dismiss you, take you for granted, walk all over you, gaslight you, and use you. Most days you will feel like the world is on your shoulders and you will feel like nobody seems to understand what you are going through, you will be tired and exhausted, which is why it is important to step back and let God work it out. The more we try to fix things on our own timeline the more God will push his timeline back. God has the solution but he cannot work it out until we are completely hands off.
So, hear me out sis! That problem that has you stressed, that problem that is causing you anxiety and sleepless nights, that problem that seems to be beyond repair, are all problems too big for you to take on. But guess what? There is no problem to big or too small for God; he knows all and sees all so let him do the heavy lifting while you sit back, live life, study Gods word, and be ready to receive those blessings he has waiting for you. God wants to give you your hearts desires but you have to be ready to receive it.
