God is Greater Than Our Worried Hearts

I don’t know what to do. I’ve wrestled with this decision for a month. Before church, I talked with others in the same situation. I wish it was different. Some are saying “no” to the opportunity, some said, “Yes.”

During the sermon, a message dinged on my phone. What am I going to do? I didn’t want to ponder it during church.

Condemnation came. “Why did you look at your phone?” “Were you gossiping earlier?” On and on it went. “Don’t you want to climb higher with Jesus as you wrote about in your last post?”

1 John 3:18-21, “…practice real love. This is the only way. …living in God’s reality. (19) It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, (20) even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves. (21) And friends, once that’s taken care of and we’re no longer accusing or condemning ourselves, we’re bold and free before God!” The Message

I decided to forget it. I refused to carry it into the Nursing Home Service. I can’t love them if I’m preoccupied.

July 28, 2019: 1 John 2-3.
