“Not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
When we give something to God, it feels wonderful because we are essentially giving the burden, worries and cares of that situation over to him. You will feel an overwhelming peace knowing that it is in his hands. The problem is when we 'take back' the issue. Whether it be taking back control of something we surrendered to him, trying to take care of ourselves in an area, try to figure out our own way, when we initially asked for his direction - no matter what way you put it all of these things will cause us to be regretful and cause us more pain and frustration. God will be there for you unlike anyone else you will have in your life and the best part is that he wants to be that statue in your life.
