Lord, I believe!

I have been very remiss in posting recently. I've had an awful lot on my mind and haven't felt the drive to write it down.

Why is it so hard to trust that God knows what He is doing? I feel as if I am having to relearn a lesson about letting go of my worries and trusting that God will take care of us. I cannot change a lot of things in my life. I have very little control. I wish I could translate knowing that God is in control into feeling like I can remain at peace.

We have not yet received our immigration approval, even though we forwarded the additional paperwork they requested. I'm nervous that we'll get denied, even as I am confident that God has our daughter in His hands. Why can't I let go of the stress of the unknown when I know God has a plan for us?

I don't know how many miracles I have to experience to avoid stressing out when something goes wrong or doesn't follow my plans. I keep reminding myself that I am a work in progress, that God isn't finished with me yet. I'm so glad He doesn't let go of me, even when I don't always trust Him fully! I know He's there. I know He loves me. "Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief!"

I would love to meet someone whose faith is so strong that they can just let go and let God. Easy to say, but not so easy when it comes right down to it.
