I am a worrier. I worry about my family, their safety, their happiness, their health. I try not to worry and often rename concern…since the Bible does not say “Don’t be concerned about anything, but pray about everything!”
I really worry about Gideon. How is he doing academically? Is he having a good day? Did he have fun during recess? Recess has not been a highlight for him. Yesterday, he reported that his class voted to have an additional recess for a special reward and said, “I wanted to cry!”
All night I worried about the extra recess. Should I rescue him and take him some where special for lunch or just let him struggle through it on his own? I prayed, but have such a hard time trusting the Lord with things that I can fix (or mess-up) on my own. :-)
I canceled sushi with a friend to join Gideon at recess. Gideon had such a great time playing that he hardly knew I was there!!!
Lesson learned…again: God is faithful and can be trusted…so live like it!!!
