So school officially started here on Monday. And I’m letting it all go!
Ahh…. If only you knew what was going on prior to that first day. All 3 kids got sick. I said. All three. They all had fevers. They were all coughing. They were all fairly miserable.
And here sits mom. Worrying. Deciding not to worry. Praying. Worrying again. Casting out the worry with prayer.
I was so uptight. Would they be able to go to school on Monday? They can’t miss their first day of school it’s so important! What will happen? Will my 7th grader figure out his way around the ‘new’ school building? Will I get a call from the nurse sending them all home because they were hacking during class?
If you’re a momma, can you relate? We spend so much time caring for. Or in lots of cases worrying over our children.
Will they be safe?
Will they make good choices?
Will this sickness lead to death? ( Stay away from Google!)
Will they choose good friends?
Will they use their manners?
From the moment they are born they are entrusted to our care so it’s only natural for us to care about all these things. But sometimes I get caught up in the caring too much instead of just releasing it to God.
I have no control over whether they will safe all day. NO CONTROL.
I have no control over who they will choose to sit a the lunch table with. NO CONTROL.
I have no control over the health of their bodies. NO CONTROL.
Every year we pray over the decision of schooling for our children. And I had such anxieties about it this year for my oldest. But I feel nudged in the direction to send him back to school this year.
And do I doubt that God is completely and utterly capable of taking care of my children? How can I doubt the God that created him in the first place? How can I doubt the very one who puts air in my lungs to breath. The one who created whose skies without limit? How can I doubt his ability? I can’t. And I won’t!
Let go of your concerns!
Then you will know that I am God.
I rule the nations.
I rule the earth.
But I can stop and pray to the one who does. The ONE who sees all, knows all, created all and cares about all.
And the song that bring me back to reality. God will take care of you. God will take care of my children. God will take care of me.
Praying that you know this affectionate God. The God that truly does God care for you. Everything about you.
Love and blessings,
