When you start to worry about loved ones…

I have spent the past couple of days worrying about travels a friend of mine is about to take. I had familiarised myself with the not so nice ‘sick with worry’ feeling and as the leaving date arrived, I had a mini revelation. I realised that just because we have labelled it normal or understandable to worry about certain things, it does not mean it is right/good. In that moment my mind also opened up to the (obvious) fact that God can (and does) look after them better than I can. Immediately the sick worry left and I started singing along to my worship cd (this revelation took place while I was driving). Praising and thanking God. 

Some things our loved ones go through do fill us with worry and dread. While they seem mind boggling to us, God is in control.

Peace!

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
