There are many things I need to improve in my journey to holiness, but one for sure is my ability to surrender my worries and concerns to God with faith and full confidence. This morning I woke up worrying about a situation of a friend. I wonder how the person could get better, I wondered what I could do to help, and I feared what could happen if things don't improve. I pray for this person every day, but in general terms, for this person's well being.
My wife then came to the room and was telling me a story about how the father of this child that was very ill prayed with full confidence in God's mercy and the child was miraculously healed. Her story hit me like a brick. What am I doing worrying about this person's future? Have I still no faith? Jesus can calm a storm with one command, yet I think I can fix something on my own and don't think of surrendering and asking. I need to surrender this specific concern to God and ask for His mercy and grace in this specific situation. I can't do anything, but He can do it all. If it is His will, and it is what's best then this person will be healed. It's in Jesus' hands. Of course, yesterday's reading just confirmed the revelation.
