My teenager drove us to school today, and as I gripped the passenger seat, I wondered if there is a special place in Heaven for parents who teach their children to drive.
This and other significant life changes have stoked anxiety that I felt I had mastered years ago.
In this way trust is an ever-moving target—more of a journey than a destination. I have to lay each new challenge, each milestone into the capable hands of God as it comes.
I rebalance myself around the truth that as I seek Him first and seek to be like Him, He will enable me to put anxiousness about the future away and focus on today (Matthew 6:33).
It’s as simple as a prayer: “God, will You take this, too? Will You carry this burden and replace it with Your peace?”
The fact that it doesn’t come easily and automatically very time is no reason for shame, rather an opportunity to lean a little heavier on the promises of God than I did before.
What do you need to lay down at the feet of Jesus today?
