Who shall I trust?
First day of school and so the school marathon begins.
My daughter is a pre-teen so many issues have now begun to emerge.
As I got to the school I came across this scene…
Boys between the ages of 12 and 15 were in a group talking. They were all tidy and with neatly combed hair.
I don’t know what got into me that day, but I had an emotional attack mixed with concern.
I looked at my daughter and thought:
What will happen now? She will begin a phase of discovery. It seems as though the world wants to devour our children!
I thought of those boys hitting on my daughter. I thought of all the bad influences. Uff! I thought and felt it.
It was in that brief moment while I was walking to the classroom that this happened. But, after we entered the classroom I had already forgotten about that awful emotional attack.
Just to add, all the way to school I was talking to her about bad influences.
It was a Monday afternoon and I was home cleaning the house in silence, my thoughts were calm.
I was caught by surprise…
You know that feeling of concern you had?
It’s because you’re not relying on Me and My work in your daughter’s life.
My heart was filled with fear God spoke to me.
No matter what the condition, situation, or excuse you may have it doesn’t camouflage what doesn’t please God.
This experience was an awakening. It opened my vision as to my trust in God.
“Every time we worry, we’re anxious, want to solve things our way, or let our feelings be restless and take our peace, it’s because deep down we’re not trusting in God.”
Evaluate in what areas of your life you haven’t trusted in God and because of it you’ve been worrying and even making up scenes in your mind of things that never happened or never will happen. Make the decision to surrender everything to God and trust in Him completely.
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.“ (Isaiah 26:3)
