Don't Worry!

Slice of Life Story Challenge
Slice 3 of 31
 Two Writing Teachers Day 3

We decided to attend mass as a family (Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister), provoked by the three year old pleading, "I want to go, I want to go!"  What could be better than a little darling begging to go to church?  For some reason, we were meant to be there today!

We all got ready in time and braved the cold and snow.  We piled into the car and made our way down the road to hear the word of God.  We prayed and listened...and knew we were meant to hear the words The Father sent us.  All about not worrying...to sum it up, if God brings you to it, he'll get you through it.  This applies in so many ways with the worries we've recently been focused on in our lives.  Our careers, our families, and the weather have all been draining sources of tension and worry lately.  But God tells us, he will provide. Don't waste another minute with worry.

And then, a post from a friend on Facebook popped up to really cement the theme of no worry...Phillipians 4 "Don't worry about anything:  instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs and don't forget to thank him for his answers.  If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand."

So, no more worries slicing friends...no more worries.  Give it up to God.   Have faith that he will be there.  He will.

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the month long Slice of Life Story Challenge.  Hope you're joining in the fun!

  8. Isn't it an undefinable experience when things happen like that? To feel the nudge and then have it solidified from another source. It gives me goosebumps when I read stories how God works his message through other people. Thanks for sharing this today and I pray that you have the strength to give your worries to Him.

  12. It's so true, but it can be so difficult to turn all of our worries and fears over to God. But when we do, we feel that sense of peace. I love Leigh Ann's prayer of strength to give your worries to God. I pray the same for us both.
