Our Troubles

“We sometimes fear to bring our troubles to God, because they must seem small to Him who sitteth on the circle of the earth. But if they are large enough to vex and endanger our welfare, they are large enough to touch His heart of love. For love does not measure by a merchant’s scales, not with a surveyor’s chain. It hath a delicacy… unknown in any handling of material substance.”

(Reuben Archer) R. A. Torrey

Questions: 

1. Have you ever questioned as to whether or not you should bring your troubles or cares to the Lord?

2. If so, why did you not turn to God?

My response:
Sometimes, my mom will tell me, “Misha, God has bigger and better things to care about.” Luke 12:7 states, “But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” I reflect on this verse when I hesitate to bring even least of my concerns to God.

  1. Amen! I think it’s funny how we all question whether or not God is capable of handling our prayers. Who are we to question Him?

  2. I used to worry if what I was asking Dad for was important enough. That triggered the bad habit of me trying to do things by myself. Nowadays, I know that nothing is too small for Him to pay attention to. The only problem is I need to keep this in my mind. God loves us unconditionially, and that will never change.
