No Worries!

I heard a story about a young boy, a passenger on a vessel in the open ocean. The seas were quite rough, and getting rougher. Many of the passengers began to fear the worst. But the boy sat quietly, engulfed in one of his books. Some of the passengers began to notice the boy. Finally, one of the panicked passengers asked the boy, "Aren't you worried?" The boy looked up calmly and said, "No. My Daddy's the Captain."

I can learn a lesson from that boy! Because I look around and see all the troubles in the world, all the things I think I need to worry about or I don't like the direction life is heading. That's when I can start to worry. I want to step in and take control, even if that control is to worry. I need to stop worrying and remember that my Father is the Captain. He has plans for me and will make sure I arrive safely!

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them."
