Morning Devotional:

One worried thought and the next thing I knew, half my night was gone.

I’m dealing with a pretty big situation in my life right now, one that has had me vacillating from doubt to faith, panic to peace, and so on. I don’t have a resolution yet.  I don’t even have a plan and the strain is starting to wear on me. This self-confessed worry wart is doing just that – worrying. But as the Lord does, He provided me with some much needed perspective.

Yesterday I got an email from someone I don’t even know committing to pray for me, sensing an unspoken need. A coworker here at the radio ministry knew the right word to say at just the right time to connect me with a dose of truth. It was as if in one fell swoop, God showed me that not only does He have the intercessory prayer team in place, but that my worries were already taken care of.

Worry is a funny thing.  We do a lot of it, thinking it will get us somewhere when in reality it keeps us stuck in the same place and wears us out. There is truth in what Jesus asks in Matthew 6:27, “Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?”  The answer to that is no. Worry doesn’t move a single mountain – it just makes for a lot of sleepless nights. We need to be trusting in Him a whole lot more.

– Beth
