Deep in this land of uncharted territory, called life, we find ourselves amongst a heap of blessings. For if you fret about something long enough, you'll eventually come to your senses and manage to pray about it. Sometimes it takes longer than usual.
We're on the edge of being slung into the fury of back-to-school madness. If you haven't had a kid to send off to school in many moons let me catch you up. Basically, you are given a list of school supplies that will hopefully cover the entire school year. Then you decide which kidney you want to sell to pay for said items. I joke, but not really. It is super expensive.
I've got two boys in high school this year.
(Please stop here for a moment of silence.)
High school comes with a whole truck load of "fees" for every class.
It's also when your kids become too cool to hang out with you, FYI.
I say all of that to say this: We fall into that category of families that live on an extremely tight budget. I nearly faint when the school supply list hits the stands. It isn't the list itself, per se, but the knowledge that the bigger picture requires lists, school fees, clothing, shoes, backpacks, etc...
I've done a lot of footwork ahead of time this year to help get our girl settled for the year. I've done nothing for my boys.
(I don't want to talk about it).
We have been blessed this week by someone who is taking one list off of our hands and crossing those things off for us. I can not tell you the relief, but if you've been there, you can surely imagine.
I say all of that to say this. Earlier this week I finally handed my worry over to God instead of hoarding it up all to myself. As soon as I did, things begin to happen.
I don't know what kind of worry you're hoarding, but God will be more than glad to hear about it. Prayer changes things.
I still have a heap of things on my list, but I know that God is bigger than any list I can make, and has a much better plan than I do.
God is good, all the time!
