So, it was a possibility that our 10 year old had appendicitis so naturally I was very scared of that, turned out to be a stomach flu...Our 16 month old little girl thinks she can run with the best of them and somehow dislocated her arm. I was very worried about her as well...It breaks your heart to see one of your kids in pain, even if its something as small as a broken finger it still hurts. It reminded my of the scripture in Phillipians 4:6 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in EVERYTHING by prayers and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your request to God." I find it extremely comforting to know that we sever a God who cares about the smallest things in our lives. I never feel ashamed or embarrassed to go to him about ANYTHING..it doesn't matter the issue is he is always there waiting.
So many times I think people feel like their problem isn't big enough to get God's attention and that holds them back from the little things in life. Don't let it! Don't ever let anything hold you back from BOLDLY going before God. Hebrews 4:15 "For we do NOT have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses , but we have one who has been tempted in every way just as we are, yet was without sin. Let us approach the throne of Grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find Grace to help us in our time of need." I am so glad that we have a God who above all else can sympathize with us, to me that means the most. There is nothing greater then having that close relationship with someone that you feel so safe to tell them anything and you are never afraid of judgement, ridicule, laughing, mocking or whatever other emotions that hold you back from opening up. I only pray that I can become the kind of person who is like that.
