Why Worries

I have been worry in the last month. I am worry about our health, financial situations, and it’s getting closer to our plan to go but our ministry budget is not there yet. Adding to that, in the last 4 days I am worry about my grandma, who is 90 years old, unbeliever, was admitted to the hospital 3 days ago and not going good. My family took her home yesterday but still not showing any good improvement. I am so worry and sad that we would not be able to go and see her for the last time maybe. These things are just adding and adding up to my mind and heart, and cause me not to have enough sleep at nights.

My worries are taking over me, my heart, my mind, my focus, and even my faith. I start to doubt and fear of the future. My worries cause a lot “What If” questions in my mind.

Because of being worry, I forgot of my God, how big He is, how awesome his awesomeness and how faithful He is.
Because of being worry, I forgot that my God is the God of impossible.

My God can perform signs of wonder. My God can save. My God can!

Jesus asks a question in Matthew 6:27, “Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” the answer is NO. Worries cannot add any single moment to your life. God can. Jesus says that seeking the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. So we don’t have to be worry about tomorrow (Matthew 6:33-34). And John reminds us in 1 John 5:14-15 that when we know that God hears and answers whatever we ask that pleases Him, we have confidence in God. Whatever we ask that will please God’s heart and bring glory to His only name, He will give what we ask for.

Isn’t that awesome and wonderful promises we have in God? Yes, He will work it out in our lives and show us His wonderful glory.

If you ever wonder about God and his faithfulness, then don’t. Have faith and confidence in Christ Jesus, then you will meet God, the Father. He will fill you with His Holy Spirit when you trust and believe in Him. God is God. No one like Him.

Today, let’s we stand and worship God in awe and wonder!

  1. Hi Helen
    I am sooo sorry to hear that things are hard at the moment with your family. I once read of Hanna’s faith. She was lady amidst great suffering. But…she kept giving all her worry in our Lord Jesus’ hands over and over and over, again and again until she experienced His peace. I hope this might help you! I am glad that you know to keep on looking up to the God of all comfort and provision!
    Bless you and your family
