My ego resists me when I trust God instead of it. When He became the focus of my thoughts, I was able to get rid of my worries, anxiety and fears because there is nothing about which I need to be apprehensive. My soul is in a state of quiet rest when I am trusting Him with my future.
All of my ambitions, dreams and goals are no longer creating stress for me because I have replaced them with the single desire to continually abide in His presence. The contentment I experience is the serene confidence that all of the events going on in my life are happening because of something He is orchestrating.
There is no longer a need for me to be judgmental or to be influenced by my circumstances. They are what they are and by seeking the Lord and His Kingdom, I am able to persistently experience His righteousness, peace and joy.
It has become a wonderful way to live and I give Him all the glory and praise.
