Ever worry about something so big it seems like no one can help? Something so big that even your parents can’t help?
And there they sat worried, what tomorrow might bring.
They couldn’t relax, there would be no sleeping.
Worrying had consumed their minds,
Their parents had sold the house, the line was signed.
Now what, where would they go?
They need to know.
Where would they live? Where would they sleep?
Worry only worries would reap.
Their parents had a plan, right?
A vision for the future in sight.
Or maybe not, maybe this was it,
Homelessness might be the next visit.
The worries didn’t stop, anxiety was high,
But God was in charge, He heard their cry.
He was there listening to every fear,
Ready to help, to interfere.
He didn’t want them to worry but to give it to Him,
He had it in His hands; He would take care of them.
Peace beyond their worry is what He could give,
Peace beyond understanding and place to live.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
