I read in my devotions today about "Worthless Worry" (GRACE for the Moment, Vol. I, Max Lucado). The flower (from my garden) in this posting just doesn't look worried. I wonder why I worry and fret so much? Worrying and fretting must work - 90% of what I worry about never comes to be so it must work. Why can't I be just like the flower? It loves the rain and the wind makes the flowers roots go deeper. When the sun comes out, and it will, the flower beams!
As I study my SS Lesson for this Sunday I see where the disciples got in trouble for worrying (Matthew 8:23-27). Do you think we have a "trust issue" with Jesus sometimes as we follow him. Side note: My wife just came up behind me, hugged me, and said in a soft tone; "I love you!" Then she brought me chocolate! I trust her! She loves me! Where were we, oh yea, trusting Jesus and following Him. Maybe we are not listening to His voice when He bends over and says; "I love you!' To bad He doesn't bring chocolate - - - He did give His life for me.
