At times, I can worry with the best of them. I can imagine all the bad things that might happen to my family members, from car wrecks to plane crashes, serious illnesses to permanent disabilities, a random violent attack to emotional heartaches.
Every phsycial pain I experience myself is likely cancer or some other terminal disease, in my mind.
And while God promises His children that His grace is sufficient, He doesn’t grant it for what might be, only for what is.
So where does that leave me, with my hands and my heart full of worry and “what if’s?”
With 2 Corinthians 10:5.
“Casting down imaginations….and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
From there, I take it all to God in prayer, and trust Him – and not my own understanding – for what will be, for me and for those I love, in His perfect plan, today and in the days to come.
I have the exact same kind of worries! And I try to do the same thing. 🙂

Interesting thought, Tracey. Hadn't really looked at my own set of "what if's" in the light of 2 Cor. 10:5. This is a good reminder to me to put my thoughts and heart aches in the Lord's hands and care. Appreciate this! Chris
I've never thought about this this way, either! Excellent perspective!!!
