“The verb “commit to” is from a word meaning “to roll.” The idea is to “roll your cares onto the Lord.” Trusting the Lord with our decisions frees us from preoccupation with our problems.” (Foundation Study Bible, Proverbs 16:3)

“There are so many techniques and approaches today that teach us how to master our stress and anxiety, to take control of ourselves and our problems. Christianity teaches us turn our problems over to God. It is not an abdication of responsibility, quite the contrary. It is taking full responsibility without slipping into delusion that we can control and solve all our problems by our own power. To taste Christ’s promised peace by “outsourcing” our problems to God is a precious gift most of us do not accept.” (Sacramental Living Blog)

“Sometime we find ourselves caught in a problem and see now way out. Don’t panic; God can open a way…When nothing makes sense, and when troubles seem more than you can bear, remember that God gives strength. Take your eyes off your difficulties and look to God.” (Life Application Study Bible, Exodus 14:21, Habakkuk 3:17-19)

“When you want to resolve a complex problem, seek God’s will in the matter, and you will find a constructive solution." (St. Mark the Ascetic)

“Sometime we need to let “it” be. That “it” may be a problem, a relationship, or our very life, for that matter. But when we “let it be,” it should be because we turn over that problem to God, or as another slogan goes, “Let go and let God.” (Marianne C. Sailus)
