What does this passage mean to you?
BLOG: Bettys doctor appointment was this morning. We were a little apprehensive. What would the x-rays say? What would the doctor think? Have we been doing everything correctly? Did we make bad matters worse in some way?
All the questions that run through your mind and endless.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Now I am not advocating that one should not have appropriate concern for their situation. But there will come the point where you have to decide if you are going to put this in God's hands.
It is this that you have to be prepared for, but how?
First of all, do not dwell on the worst, focus on His best. God has promises that even in death (which I have to assume is the worst thing that can happen), He would provide for our need. God is good - don't forget that.
Secondly, pursue peace. I addressed this in yesterday's blog, but I want you to focus on the goal. When you get up in the morning, are you going to seek something to worry about, or are you going to pursue peace?
Thirdly, keep your mind on things above. Col 3:2 Think about anything good and pure. Phil 4:8 - You are what you think.
Bettys report. The doctor came in and said, "You're doing great!" He was surprised that her bones were healing. Then he told her to keep the boot on for another three weeks. Praise God.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, help me to think about you and not the worst-case scenarios in my life. AMEN
