Don’t Worry, Ask God

Philippians 4:6.
Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for whatever you need, always asking Him with a thankful heart.

“Where is it?  I can’t find it!”  I was beginning to panic.  After two days of searching, I still couldn’t find my Social Security card.  I needed it to finish an application for some government assistance.  The agency didn’t just want the number, they wanted a copy of the actual card.  I knew I could get a new card, but that would take several days and I needed to send in the form soon.

Like most of you, I don’t carry my card with me.  I put it in a very safe place, so it won’t get lost.  But, where is that “safe place?”  I have a good memory, yet I had no idea where I’d put it.

That evening, in my prayers, I asked God to help me find my card.  Almost immediately, the thought “look in the wooden box in the bookcase” popped into my head.  Well, my response was “why would I put it there?  The only thing in there is a rose from an old boyfriend.”

I shouldn’t have doubted.  The next day I opened the box and there it was, right on top! In my panic and frustration, I had forgotten that I should not “worry about anything.”  But “ask God for whatever” I need.

I have heard similar stories from others.  It is not unusual for God to lead you to something you need. 

So, what have you lost?  What are you looking for?  Whether it’s something physical or emotional, “don’t worry” and turn to God.  If you ask “with a thankful heart,” He will answer.

Until next time, God Bless You.
