For instance, how do we stop the jaudice (see my earlier post here)? How do we make it go away? We can just take her to the doctors and let them put her under the light. And then wait. Wait for each day's report on her blood test.
That is just one of the many examples. If we want to be paranoid, we can be worrying over the million and one things that could happen to her, all of which seems to be out of our control. At the most, we can minimise the risk - but can we ever eliminate it?
So one can just worry - and tears have been shed - most of which i think are due to feelings of helplessness, of not being able to do anything.
But thankfully, we have a God who is all powerful and all knowing. And we have a God who loves us so very much.
A fren recently reminded me - "It's difficult to ask you not to worry. But we have to learn to trust God. Small little things like this that challenges us".
That's so true. It is so difficult. But yet, we have to learn to trust in God. And he has yet to fail us!
One elder was preaching the other day about Moses, how his parents when he was a baby had to let him float down the river Nile in a basket, just having faith in God that he will protect their son. And sure enough, God did. Parents will have to learn to trust in God, to go in faith.
