Give Your Worries to God

Give Your Worries to God
Dawn Kennedy, Early Childhood Director

Scripture Reading:

Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:13: “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”

Matthew 6:34: “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own.

          I come from a line of worriers. It’s a struggle of mine to not worry about everything that comes my way. These verses help me to focus on not worrying but giving my worries to God. I often find myself focusing on my problems, then in the middle of the issue I hear a small voice that reminds me that I haven’t laid it at the feet of Jesus. Once I do that, an amazing peace comes over me. Then I can go on knowing and reassuring myself that God has everything under control, that He has a plan that is better than my plan. God has been with me through the death of a friend and family, financial troubles, life choices (buying a house, family job changes, school changes for our children, etc.), personal health issues, and day to day matters. Our God is all powerful and all knowing! He can and will handle everything that comes our way, we just have to lay it down at His feet.
