Ever go on a mommy date with a worrier? It’s challenging right? The conversation revolves around the negative. To immunize or not; we worry, to homeschool or not; we worry. To breast or bottle feed; we worry.
What color was the poop…we worry.
I’m not talking about healthy concern here, I’m talking about a worrier.
As moms we are called to care for God’s children and love our spouses. We are called to be concerned for them, but not to worry over them and every possible situation they might encounter. We are called to fill one another up not drag each other down.
When we worry we take our eyes off of God and focus on the worship of self. How am I going to handle this, control this, instead of vertically venting it to God and listening for His direction.
Luke 12:22-32 NIV
Do Not Worry
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[a]?26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
