The more time I spend reading things on the internet or hearing the news, the higher my blood pressure goes! While I KNOW that worrying about things doesn’t change them, it is hard to put into practice the whole “let go and let God” thing (which isn’t in the Bible, by the way!). But this morning as I was looking up this verse, God graciously laid a word picture on my heart: If worries were rose petals, and I tossed them into the air on a windy day, that would be like tossing them to God as He scatters them and takes them where He would, according to His will and plan, and away from me. Conversely, trying to pick them all up again would be fruitless, as He has removed them so far from my hands.
Does anyone else see the joy in this picture? Because it has lightened my heart and made me thankful today!
