I looked down at my child and saw that they were anxious. This bothered me, I had no pleasure from it. This got me thinking about us and God our heavenly father. Humans are not equipped for anxiety. We were not meant to be burdened. What causes us to be burdened is trying to figure out things or to try to do things independent of God. God does not want his children to be anxious, and when he sees us anxious he does not like it. What is that thing you are thinking about that has you feeling fretful? He says, “my child, be anxious for nothing, I will take care of you”. Why then we might ask, has he not taken care of me yet? The next question you should ask yourself is this, have you taken your cares to him.. and… waited for him to answer? You see, I am very good about taking my cares to him, but waiting for him to move is another ball game. He says, “I am able”. When we know he cares about us, and I mean about every little thing that concerns us, then we will run to him. Think about the time you had a friend who cared about you and you felt you could safely run to them and be yourself. That is God, he is “that” friend. Maybe you have never had a friend like that, well guess what, God is that friend you have missed and longed for. He is the comforter for your soul. He is not imagined, he is, as he says “I am that I am”. He is the great, “I am”. He is it all. He is all you have ever hoped for or imagined. You don’t believe me? Try him. He says, “taste and see that I am good”. Go to him with that very thing that is making you feel worried, talk to him about it, ask him for a solution, and then.. wait…. he will counsel you he is waiting for you to truly seek him, seek his face. Get to know home. God I am so grateful that I have a God who is perfect like you. I am so grateful that you are slow to anger and full of mercy. Thank you for your promises that we can trust. You say that when we seek you first everything else will be added to us. I count on it father, my God who cares.
