It’s a big week! There is a lot to worry about, and a lot I know I need to turn over to the One who is in charge of it all in the first place.
I’ve been watching a mole on Whitney’s forehead that has suddenly turned ugly. We’re taking her in to have it looked at. Isabelle has been having severe stomach pain since June, so we are taking her to a special kids doctor in Grand Rapids later this week to have her tummy checked out. We’ve been dealing with mean middle school girls on and off all school year. I’m trying to help my girls what it means to be a mean girl, why they can be so mean, and sometimes how THEY are the mean girl—a hard lesson to both teach and learn (thanks mom for showing me when I was the mean girl).
With all of this on my plate, I am starting this week with gratitude for all we have, and a deep breath. I know my Redeemer lives, He’s alive, He’s around me, He’s got all this. It’s comforting to know, really.
What’s on your worry plate this week? Leave it here in a comment and I’ll pray for you. Leave it with Jesus and He’ll comfort you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
