Last night on the way home, I drove in light rain; it was mostly splashes from the street and other vehicles, but a light rain. And the sun was shining, with the gray clouds scattered above, and ...
The beauty of it all in that short moment made me cry. But, the tears only reflected my feelings of inadequacy and aloneness – but also gave me the assurance that there is One much greater than I. His promise to me is that He’ll always be there to guide me through it all. Right now, as usual, I need that assurance.
Things are going crazy at home again. I just don’t know what to do! We know what the medical problem is, but the complaining, confusion, arguing all continues. And, the fact that he will not accept the medical problem that has been diagnosed by a doctor makes life even harder! His response: “There’s nothing wrong with me. It’s all in your head!”
So, I look back to that beautiful rainbow and try to hold onto the assurance that God is here through it all! His Word tells us not to be anxious about anything; not to worry about anything! We (I) only need to pray thanking God that He will supply all my needs.
Knowing that God is there to take the worry away is easy in saying, in knowing; but we (I) so easily forget this. I worry needlessly about things because I feel I am in this alone. If I don’t do it, who will? But, God tells me I should not worry or be anxious because I am not in this alone! He is and will always be there to lead, to guide, to walk beside me. His Word says so; I believe this – but why is it so hard to let go of this worry?
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
