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.
