Why Worry

Why Worry?


Night has come and the stillness of the dark envelopes me as I reflect upon my day. What things have I accomplished in the midst of our whirlwind lives? Have I warmed my daughters with a blanket of love that they will wrap their hearts in and bless others with the same? Did I imitate God’s grace in their eyes when harsh punishment would have previously governed? In what ways did I allow my daughters to blossom in their own inventive avenues? All these things weigh heavily on my heart each day. Even with all my fears of whether I was the best mother to my children, the day closed uneventfully.

My daily ritual, as a mother, is worrying. I believe it comes naturally to all mothers. How can we not? God has bestowed on us the most awesome task of loving, nurturing, and shaping the generations to come! Matthew 6:27 questions us, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” (NIV) The last time I checked, I was not able to. How wonderful it would be to have that power! Some days would work out better if they only had a few more hours in them! Matthew 6:34 tells us not to worry. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (NIV)

God does not want us to worry. How amazing that we can give Him all of our problems? He knows what to do and He has the power to do it! We must have faith enough to leave everything in His hands, not just a portion. So many times, I find myself not wanting to turn everything over to Him. He gently reminds and guides me to His direction. It eventually ends up with God. Sometimes I might have to take a few wrong turns and experience a few more tears than if I had just given it all to Him in the first place! Whatever worries you are having, Ask God to take all of them…then let Him have it so that He can work His will!

I agree- as a mother I think it's part of our job description to worry. Praise God that he has allowed us the freedom to let him do it for us! Great reminder for moms everywhere.
