Of my many faults, the one that seems to be the most explicitly debilitating is my tendency to worry.
My name is Ronke, and I am a worrywart.
Often times, my worries are illogical, and have no basis in reality - in the reality that Jesus has created for me, that is.
And often times, when I begin to worry, I hear the Lord telling me not to. That He has everything under control.
With sky-high financial responsibilities, job duties, and family duties hanging over my head, it's easy to forget what the Lord has said - multiple times.
I know you know what I mean.
Here's what the Lord has for us tonight: we forget and we worry because we have flesh. On the other hand, to completely overcome these faults of ours, we would need to be devoid of flesh.
In the meanwhile though, while we still have flesh, we can be a little behind.
Instead of making plans and then struggling to execute those plans, we can follow behind Jesus.
We can do what He says, when He says.
Trusting and knowing that there's no reason to worry because Jesus has thought about it all.
And He's got it all figured out.
