Can I just say that I decided this morning to sit down and blog about the terrible couple of weeks I have been having. I am miserable…I feel terrible…my kids have felt terrible…
Then you hear that still, small voice saying, “Look at others around you.” When I look I see Megan (www.caringbridge.org/visit/meganbrittain), who is in Children’s Hospital after recently having surgery to remove a tumor…still battling for her life against this terrible cancer…when I continue to look, I see baby Harper (www.kellyskornerblog.com), who is only three days old and fighting for her life in a children’s hospital in Tulsa…
When I continue to look, I see healthy children, a wonderful husband, who by the way, has taken great care of us sick folks and even got up this morning and washed dishes! Thank you Lord for reminding me to look around at others when all I can think of is myself.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:25-27,34
Lord, please remind me that worrying about myself does me no good. remind me to put every situation in your hands and walk away, knowing You care for me.
Until next time,
