What can I do? Many times I find myself concerned about things I have no control over. This morning I’m concerned about the yard work being done. It rained really hard last night and the ground is still wet, and now the lawn mower is probably leaving ruts. The lawn company doesn’t care, they’re just trying to get their work done and move on to the next neighborhood. Yesterday, before the rain, I was concerned about them cutting the grass too short because of the unrelenting heat scorching it. However, it looks like the rainy season has finally begun, and the grass will probably start to grow out of control. Do you see how ridiculous this thought pattern is? I go through the same thing with more important issues, but even then, the pattern is still ridiculous, we have no control over the outcome. God is in control of all things, even the rate the grass grows! Don’t you think He can handle the pressing issue that has consumed you?
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. Psalms 9:10
