Basket Case

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7 (NIV)

For the past few weeks, I'd been searching for our fall altar centerpiece. Last year, our maintenance crew put away the autumn decorations to prepare for Christmas. I didn't take the time to find out where they'd been stored. Now, my carelessness was catching up, and I was searching in vain for a replacement.
"Lord, when will I learn to be more responsible"?

This morning, I walked into the worship center, still stewing about my dilemma. I couldn't believe my eyes-the missing basket was back on the altar where it belonged. I hadn't told anyone it was missing, but God knew.

"Lord, when will I learn to trust You completely"?

Isn't it just like God to take care of even the little things for us? The Bible tells us to cast our cares on Him. Whatever your burden, take it to God. He is willing, able and waiting to help you.

Father, thank You for carrying my burdens, just for the asking.

Dorsee (OH)
