Yesterday we went to a graduation party to celebrate the high school graduation of a friends son, a young man that I had coached throughout the years in football and baseball. When we arrived and greeted our friend, we asked her how she was doing and if she was happy that all the work and stress of preparation was over. She instantly said that it hadn’t been that stressful as she had given it all to God. And you could see…..she was happy and looked to be pretty stress free.
What a great inspiration to me she was. The way that she enjoyed life, despite any stresses or anxieties about getting ready for this party, was great to see and humbling as I tend to stress over trivial things.
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you. -1 Peter 5:7
Go first to God with your anxieties, for God’s solution is just a prayer away.
