I am an over thinker. I can ruminate a thought like a cow chewing cud. I have a tendency to be flighty, so I over compensate by over analyzing things to death. But there are some things where this is futile.
Deuteronomy 29:29 says, “There are mysterious things God has (purposefully) hidden from us.” There are some things that, no matter how hard we pray or how thoroughly we search the scriptures, will never be answered. As an official OverAnalyzer this is frustrating! However, there is a simple (but oh, so difficult, cure): LET GO.
To over thinkers this feels like water on a vampire, yet it is the only cure to keeping one’s sanity. However, for the Christian, it comes with a safety net. You see, we don’t just willy-nilly “let go”. No. We let things go but INTO HIS HANDS. The hands that control all and promise to work all things for our good. The hands that back up the promise with nail scars. God wants the best for us. Whatever we have to release, He is more than capable of taking and reworking, like a potter and clay. That bad decision you cant change? Release it. That closure that eludes you? Let it go. That thing you just cant control? Let it go. All into His capable hands, trusting that the One Who has hidden these mysteries from you has done so for a loving reason. What is necessary in letting go? TRUST. Like a “trust fall”, you cannot let go without TRUST. Trust Him in the things you cannot see.
