I have some anxiety going on ... again. Dismay that now we've made a reservation for that extra day Jim isn't staying in seminary commuter housing, we can not cancel it if necessary. And wondering if the funds in his account can be used to cover the four days of lodging at the seminary.
And then I remember Matthew 6: 34, which says "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
Personalizing that verse, I write: "Therefore, Cathy, do not worry about Jim's cyst, do not worry about Jim going to Kansas City and his time there, about his lodging needs and payment thereof, about re-arranged obit schedules at your work place. You have made preparation, you have planned, you have prayed, you are proceeding. Do not worry about tomorrow Cathy. I am in charge. I know what concerns you, where your anxiety lies, the fears you have. But don't go there. Think only on today. Think about what is true. Truth, right. Remember. Think only on Me. Trust that I will provide for you, for Jim, today. I will take care of your needs Cathy today. Do not worry about tomorrow. Today alone is important."
Hmm. The 5 P's -- Prepare / Plan / Pray / Proceed / and Trust God to Provide.
"...whatever things are true ... meditate on these things." - Philippians 4:8
What is true ... truth?
