I met this puppy, a hound dog. He was about eight weeks old. His owner was in the youth group and their mom had dropped him off at the church because she had an appointment. They decided to drop him off at a doggie daycare instead, but not before the puppy had made rounds through the entire youth group. The tiny little thing never got scared. And that got me to thinking. We are just as safe with God as that puppy was with his owner. And yet, we tend to freak out WAY too easily. It’s easy to forget somehow that God is in complete control of everything. He’s God the whole world in his hands. So, why do we worry? Why do we feel the need to control everything around like we have that power? We all need to remember to trust God with our lives, because He loves us and will never hurt us.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you so much for your love and care for us. Help us to trust you with our lives and everything we have. In Jesus Name, Amen.
