Be At Peace

I'll be the first to admit that I'm really good at giving advice, but not so good at taking it myself.
The other day I found myself frustrated over small things. Ok, so big things. Like love handle big things. I was so frustrated and depressed and upset because I couldn't see past the extra weight that my body keeps sneaking on to me. I couldn't see through to the strength that my spirit has been getting. So when I saw this sign it gave me a little smack in the face and said "Ok Sister McCall. Enough whining.  Stop troubling your heart over something that is insignificant in this moment. Trust God and know that there will be plenty of gym time. Right now you have Him time."
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
How do you put your trust in God? How has he helped you overcome obstacles?

there are times where just getting out of bed to do what you do every day, yet again, seems just to much to do for a lot of people. but when i pray for God's help to just keep on going, and make the effort to see His blessings, life has a way of making the positives more visible and laughter more accessible. i could say that toys strewn everywhere with important pieces of paper torn to shreds with food smeared all over them is terribly frustrating and choose to be upset... or i can be grateful for the little hands that did that, and the smile that little person with the little hands has waiting for me :) (rules must be learned, but i can still choose how to react, and i can ask for the help to choose the right reaction!)
