Sometimes everything and everyone seems to be doing well. Sometimes not! Right now, we know of a number of people in our area dealing with health issues. Several are younger people and diagnoses seem to be devastating news.

When that happens, what do we do? A good alternative is to pray and believe. Believe that God will take care of them. Their families. And us.

In 1 Peter 5:7 (LAB) it says, "Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you."

Bible commentary on that same verse:  "Carrying your worries, stress, and daily struggles by yourself shows that you have not trusted God fully with your life. I takes humility, however, to recognize that God cares, to admit our need and to let others in His family help you. Sometimes we think that struggles caused by our foolishness are not God's concern. But when we turn to Him, asking for His help and forgiveness, He will bear the weight even of those struggles. Don't submit to circumstances, but to Him who controls circumstances."
