Entrusting Them To Him
They are His more than they are mine
“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
How many times has my heart run back to this passage, yearning for its words? How many more times will it take before I fully receive them?
That’s the beauty of God’s words, though. I can turn to them for comfort time and time again. They never change or fade away. Steady, constant, reliable.
I’m definitely a worrier, but being a mom makes it a hundred times worse sometimes. There are so many unknowns, so many what-ifs. Often times, I literally can’t think about anything else. It feels like if I just figure everything out, or if I think about things enough, then it will somehow stop my children from facing pain or heartache. But that’s just not reality. No matter how much I fret or worry or prepare, there are some things that are beyond my control. Stressing over them does nothing but rob me of peace and steal the joy of the present moment.
But this passage reminds me that I can trust God to take care of me, and I can trust Him to take care of my family. They are His more than they are mine. He has entrusted them to me, but they belong to Him. He loves and cares for them so much more than I ever could. His plans for them may be a mystery to me, but He knows every single thing they will face, and He will be right beside them every step of the way. Just like He’s right here with me. ❤
