Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds, in Christ. -Phillipians 4:6-7
You know my heart. You know I am a worrier. I worry about my children growing up to know you. I worry about what their lives will be like as teenagers. I worry about their little self esteems and falls and spills they might make. I worry about predators lurking around ready to prey on their innocent souls. The list goes on and on. But worrying never accomplished anything. I am aware of that, and try daily to put their lives in your hands. I am asking that you be especially with Andrew tomorrow as he heads to surgery. I am trusting you with his care. I am trusting that you watch over his surgeon and give him steady hands. He is your child and I know you love him more than I can love him. I trust that you will help me through the week and give me the patience and strength to care for him. I pray that you give him a speedy recovery. You are in control Lord, and I pray you help me surrender my heart and give us peace. I put my son in Your hands. Thank you for your unfailing love.
