My Perfect World

My Perfect World
Would be like this:

Everything covered in bubble wrap!!!
By the way things have been going lately i have developed an overwhelming fear and anxiety about what the next bad thing to happen will be. and as a way of preventing that i told robb that i want to lock up everybody who is near and dear to me in my house so i can watch and feel like i am protecting them from harm. But then as i was talking to a friend (hi al) today about that we realized that you cant even be completely safe in your own home so we came up with the idea of "bubble wrap world". What do you think? I think it might work, i better get busy. Oh and nobody better try to "pop my bubble" haha.

I have become a major worry wort. None the less...The Bible clearly teaches Christians to avoid worrying. In Philippians 4:6, we are commanded, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God." In this Scripture, we learn that we should bring all of our needs and concerns to God in prayer rather than worry about them.
No worry is too big or small for His attention.

If there are worries in your life today, I encourage you to give them to Jesus. Let's do it together and just see what happens. whoa.. i have goosebumps!

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. proverbs 3:5 (thanks for this reminder jill!)

Thank you for posting that Proverb, last night I was reading some passages, looking for that one for comfort through a tough time, and I couldn't remember what it was. Thank you so much, and I am still in admiration over your strenth.

This is a struggle that I, too, have worked through following a string of illnesses and "bad things" a few years ago. It is tough, in our human-ness, to let go sometimes - I always want to be in control. But, God IS in control and will bear His children up. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the reminder that we can lean on God for every one of our needs. I too worry about everything & I needed the reminder to pray! We need others to remind us when we feel we are drowning. Thinking and praying for you constantly.

Wow that is a great idea. I have felt that way lately especially to have my family safely in our house with us. The bubble wrap is an excellant idea. Unfortunalatly i wouldn't be able to stop from popping them.
