My Grandma (3)
Bible Reading: 1 Peter 5:6-7
Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Grandma liked dogs, and she had several in her lifetime. The last dog she had was a Pomeranian named Susie. Grandma really loved Susie. Why? Because Susie protected Grandma and was her friend.
Susie was a good dog, but she had one fault. She barked too much. Susie barked when visitors came to the door, and she would continue to bark after they had entered the house and sat down. Susie also barked when the phone rang. This annoyed Grandma, and she would tell Susie, “Don’t make such a fuss!”
Susie’s barking reminds me how we act sometimes. Problems and difficult times happen and then we complain, worry and fret. Sometimes we are so busy worrying that we forget to pray and ask for God’s help.
God does not want us to be worried and unhappy. Verse 7 of our Bible Reading tells us, “Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you.” Are you facing problems today? Don’t worry! Trust God to help you. — CW*
“Don’t worry about anything. But pray and ask God for everything you need.” Philippians 4:6a
PRAYER: Father, I want to always trust You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
