I laid awake last night until after 1 am.  Thinking.  Worrying.  More thinking.  And this morning--surprise!--I woke up tired and dragging.  Then, my daily reading for today hit me where it hurt.

July 10 in "Jesus Calling": 'Though I am Lord of lords and King of kings, I also desire to be your intimate Friend. When you are tense or pretentious in our relationship, I feel hurt. I know the worst about you, but I also see the best in you.  I long for you to trust Me enough to be fully yourself with Me. When you are real with Me, I am able to bring out the best in you: the very gifts I have planted in your soul.  Relax, and enjoy our Friendship.'

When I worry, it hurts Him.  Who am I to worry when He is the King of kings, the Almighty Creator of the universe?  Sigh.


I'm feeling overwhelmed, Lord.  Help me remember every day to trust that you've got everything under control.  Forgive me when I worry.


  1. Oh my word. That is so beautiful and exactly what I needed to hear from my Savior. Thanks for sharing what spoke so much to you. It hit me hard as well.

  2. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:8 NIV

    Seems as fitting verse in light of the draught we are experiencing here in B-N.
