Unnecessary Confusion and Worry

A much-needed reminder for my prideful, worrying heart:

"With regard to the problem that is pressing in on you right now, are you 'looking unto Jesus' (Hebrews 12:2) and receiving peace from Him?  If so, He will be a gracious blessing of peace exhibited in and through you.  But if you only try to worry your way out of the problem, you destroy His effectiveness in you, and you deserve whatever you get.  We become troubled because we have not taken Him into account.  When a person confers with Jesus Christ, the confusion stops, because there is no confusion in Him.  Lay everything out before Him, and when you are faced with difficulty, bereavement, and sorrow, listen to Him say, 'Let not your heart be troubled...' (John 14:27)."  -Oswald Chamber

HE will take care of me.  HE is my protector... the Protector of my family.  Now I just have to work on getting out of His way and allowing Him to work in me!
