Just the other night, I hopped into bed and let out a bit of a groan.
“What’s the matter?” Nate asked.
My reply was a jumbled mess of words. “Do you ever feel worried, because you had just been worrying about something? But then you can’t remember what you were worrying about, but you still feel worried. So then you have to try to remember what in the world you’re so worried about?”
Then Nate replied, “I feel worried about you.”
I’ve said it before on this blog… One fault of mine is my tendency to worry, instead of letting go and just trusting God. And I’ve been working hard on this over the past few months. Initiating my Worry Box (which is really just a shoe-box filled with little bits of paper that I write worries on) has really helped. The act of physically writing down a worry, and then hiding it away in the care of the One who actually can handle the situation has been a huge step in the right direction.
And so this morning, still slightly plagued by the feeling of worry that I couldn’t put my finger on, I wrote on a piece of paper “the worry I can’t remember.” I said a quick prayer, tossed it into my box, and then went on my merry way. 🙂
Awww, I feel so much better now!!
Happy Friday, Everyone!!! Any fun plans for the new weekend ahead of us??
