I have OCD! HELP!!!

Posted: Monday, October 18, 2010 by Anthony in

Sometimes I think I have OCD. Occasionally, I scrub so hard in the shower that I irritate my skin. I'll redesign a flier 20 times before I'm satisfied and even then I have to force myself not to revisit it. My friends don't always enjoy working with me on projects because I can get pretty anal and micro-manage every phase of the process. My attention to detail is a gift and a curse. Most times, it serves me well but other times it multiplies my anxiety if my attention is focused on the wrong details. However, this morning during my meditation I believe I found the cure for my disease.

Part of the reason I'm so concerned about situations and people in my life is because I have not fully realized how concerned God is with the details of my life. I only feel safe relinquishing control of a project to someone who has a worse case of OCD than mine. My OCD and attention to detail is NOTHING compared to His. His creation is infinite and detailed beyond our imagination and comprehension. Massive and intricate universes, galaxies, and solar systems are rivaled by minute and complex human beings with cellular structures and physiological instrumentality that is still being discovered. Yet, despite His vast creation and billions of children calling on Him, He declares, "I have numbered (counted) the hairs on your head" (Matthew 10:29-31). The message bible says it this way, "...He pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail; even numbering the hairs on your head!" WOW! He knows more about me and cares more about me than I know or care about myself.  I can literally dispose of ALL of my worries, fears, and doubts and rest totally in His love and concern for me (I Peter 5:7). I want things to work out in my favor but His desire for my success obviously far exceeds my own. I can feel safe to release even the most miniscule details of my life into His hands, knowing that He will overlook nothing and leave no stone unturned.

This week, I ANTicipate EXTREME favor with God, people, and even my enemies. Jesus is so invested in my future that He will perform EVERY good work in me that He began. I'm becoming so sure of His presence and operation in my life that I am spending less time praying for myself and more time interceding for others. I speak healing, success, and PEACE over EVERYONE who reads this blog. May you be so engulfed by His concern for you that you lose all worry and fear regarding every aspect of your life. I pray for an unusual visitation of God's favor in your life this week that you may come to a greater realization of His thoughts towards you (Jeremiah 29:10-12)!
