Worry & What I know

resize.php

Hello all– Do you remember that story of Jesus and the storm?  When a squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat, his friends cried, “Don’t you care if we perish?!!”  And Jesus stood and with a few words calmed the storm.  And turned to them and asked, “Why are you so afraid, do you so have so little faith?”

We’ve been through a bit of a storm these past weeks, some uncertainty about the future.  I wish I could say I didn’t worry a bit.  But there have been a few sleepless nights when I want to cry, “Don’t you care if we perish?”  Uncertainty.  It’s just hard.

But someone reminded me of this story and who is is “in my boat.”  That’s been a comfort and a stay in these weeks.  I’m afraid my faith is still small.  I’m prone to worry.  But this is what I know– Jesus is in my boat. That is enough.

  1. Rhonda, I can’t begin to tell you how much this resonated with me and how badly I needed to read this this morning. We similarly have been experiencing the same things for months – uncertainty about our future, sleepless nights, a lot of anxiety. Thank you for sharing this today and my prayers and thoughts are with you guys!

    • Hi Debi– thank you, thank you. You know it’s just hard waiting to know how it will all come out… And–loved, loved he pic of you and your mom on Facebook. Is that recent? Do you get to hang out with Brian & your girls on Sunday? Happy weekend!! xo

    • Hi Daisy– It’s been a bewildering couple months. And early retirement package came up at work and I was so excited and then we had some financial downs and it was all so uncertain for several weeks. But this week things turned around and I think I’ll be able to retire after all. Why do I ever doubt God’s care? I just always want to take charge… Thanks for your note Daisy. You are so dear… xo

  4. So sorry it took me this long to find this. Praying my friend. He is our hope and He is our anchor. It is about all we know – He is faithful. ❤️
