Hi, my name is Ashley, and I’m a worrier.
I’m not proud of that fact. Why is it that when the most miniscule roadblock arises, I can get stressed out and start worrying? I wish I weren’t that way, that I was much stronger. Thankfully though, it doesn’t take long for God’s Word to rise up in me: God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20). I mean, we’re talking about a God who can move mountains, birth life into a barren womb, provide harvest in a drought, send down manna from Heaven, make water flow from a rock, and even make a donkey speak. Nothing’s too difficult for Him. If he showed up then, why won’t he show up for me? Duh. I’m beyond grateful that I serve a God who has never let me down. Time and time again He has come through. What a blessing that He lovingly redirects my focus in the midst of a trial and reminds me that He is in control.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:34).
