a word of encouragement

It's kind of liberating not having to be in control; the weight of of how things will turn out, is no longer on your shoulders. The best part is knowing that the control is in someone's hands that are far more capable than your own. I don't know about you but I can be a bit of a perfectionist, in that I think I know best and I rarely seek help from others; I didn't say it was a good thing. I'm working on this flaw. Especially in such a stressful time in my life right now, having just graduated and taking the next steps in my new life; it's a bit unnerving. 
In the last few months I've experienced moments of confusion, uncertainty and unrest, terrible feelings that I do everything within me to avoid; that's why I'm such a perfectionist. I believe that's why I seem to find myself in these situations all too often, and they always end the same way: I stress, I give up on myself, put my trust in God and He pulls through. Yep, He's never let me down, not even once. I don't ever set out to purposefully make a plan without Him, but I do it on a daily basis. All of this is to say, that if you find yourself in an uncertain situation, trust Him and let the calm take away all your worries and fears. When God is in control, there is only victory in the end. That's a promise.
