lovely suggested that i write all of my worries out on a piece of paper and then put that piece of paper inside of a box labeled something like, “God’s Inbox” and leave my worries there.
i tried her suggestion, writing down about a dozen different things that i found myself to be worrying about and wrote a short note at the bottom saying something to the effect that, “i will no longer worry about these things. they are in God’s hands now.”
i put the piece of paper into the box and closed the lid.
now, i’m not saying that all of my worries have been solved by this project, but i did feel a peace about those worries for the first time in quite a while. plus, it really helped to see all of the things i’m worried about written out on something tangible rather than just residing inside of my mind.
i know that there will come a point in time where i will need to write a new list of my worries and put that list inside of the box, but at least i know a small thing i can do to help me get through those particularly difficult times.
