*DAILY DEW 29TH/JULY/2021* *SURRENDER WHAT YOU CAN'T CONTROL* _Key Bible Text:_ *You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete.* (James 2:22 (NLT)) _Bible Insight:_ To make it through times of crisis with your emotional health intact, you’ll need to learn how to control what's controllable and trust God for the rest. God is active in your mental, spiritual, and emotional health. He wants you to make wise choices based on his guidance from the Bible and through prayer. And then, when you encounter something out of your control, you can surrender it to God and trust him to work it out for good. There is a great example of this in the Bible with Abraham: "You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did" (James 2:22 NIV). It's easy to go to extremes with this. For instance, you can say it’s all up to God and become passive to the point where you do nothing. On the other hand, you can act like God doesn't play a part in your life and assume everything depends on you. *Both extremes are wrong.* Maintaining good physical health, for example, is about balance. The same is true with emotional health. Find a balance that helps you recognize what’s in your control, and then make wise decisions based on God’s guidance as you read His Word and talk to him in prayer. And, learn to let go of those things that only God can handle. There are a lot of things in your life you can’t control. You can't control what happens during a pandemic or crisis, and how the government and other people handle it. *You can't control the circumstances of life, but you can choose how you will respond—and that will make all the difference.* God is always there to help you make that choice.
