Courtney (my daughter) texted me early Tuesday morning
and asked me to call her as soon as I got up.
I was asleep but of course I immediatley got up
and called her. She was worried about Colt Allen.
He seemed to be congested and had a rash on
his stomach and forehead.
We decided to make an appointment
with his pediatrician.
As we walked him into the doctor’s office
we were both fearing the worst.
We had convinced ourselves he was extremely sick
and the rash was probably something horrible.
We had almost convinced each other that
Colt Allen was on his death bed.
Thankfully we didn’t have to wait long and the peditrician
checked him and said he was perfectly fine. Really?
The rash was a heat rash, because we were burning him up!
The baby was hot! On my, did we feel silly!
Have you ever done that?
Have you convinced yourself that something terrible
was wrong with you or with someone you’re close to.
We let our minds run wild with the worst
Let’s be honest, everyday we are inundated with horrible
news all around us.
I can hardly watch the evening news anymore
because it’s so depressing.
God’s word says in Hebrews 13:6,
So we can confidently say,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not fear;
what can man do to me?”
We also know that worrying does nothing to help us.
And which of you by being anxious can add a
single hour to his span of life? Luke 12:25
What is it that you’re worrying about today………..
~maybe you’re waiting to hear from some medical tests,
~or you’re worried over a prodigal child
~maybe it’s financial problems
~a difficult marriage
~a child that struggles in school
I don’t know your exact problem but I do
know the one who does…….
and his name is Jesus.
He can handle your worries,
casting all your anxieties on him,
because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
Let’s not let worry control us!
Let’s give it to Jesus.
