I need some verses to back up a paragraph I am writing. To sum it up, I'm saying that things go better in my life when I stop trying to run my life and let God do it for me instead. What verses from the NT can you think of?

Thank you! =)

PS I need this within an hour and a half or so.

 

I have come up with:

"I can do everything through Him who gives me strength." --Phi 4:13

And also James 5:13 - 16

Anything else?

How about Philippians 1:20:

20  I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

I'll keep thinking and see if I can come up with anything else.

ETA:  "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

I don't know if either of those are exactly what you're looking for, but that's all I could find right now.  I hope you find what you're looking for!

Maybe-

Hebrews 11:6  Without faith it is impossible to please God: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
