"Giving" It To God?

Job 3:26 - "I am not at ease, nor am I quiet, and I am not at rest, but turmoil comes." This is how I have been feeling recently. Granted, I do not have to deal with the same things that Job went through, but the feelings are similar. As some of my friends know, I lost my job last week. And it wasn't because I did a poor job. Actually, I got complimented on my performance. The real reason is because of my medical problems that I've had for several months now. But, recently they have gotten worse. Which is another reason I've been a bit discouraged too. I wish I still had my old job as I loved working there. And I wish I didn't have these medical problems. Yet, I know that God is sufficient and He has a plan for me. Granted, I don't know what that plan is or the reason He is allowing these things in my life. But, I know He has a plan. So, although it may be hard at times, I just need to trust Him. He has my life in the palm of His hand. And that should be enough for me. Right? Yet, sometimes its not. Sometimes I wish I could just fix things on my own. I'm good at "giving" things to the Lord, but I'm also good at taking those things back because I'm not content with waiting and watching the Lord work things out. Does anyone else feel the same sometimes?
