Don’t Worry; Trust.

written by Joey Craft

I have multiple stories of how God has been faithful to me; whether it be through finances, giving me wisdom, or providing loving support through my brothers and sisters in Christ. 

However, the time that stands out to me the most, outside of the crucifixion, was this past summer. On a Saturday afternoon, the engine of my ’99 Pontiac Grand Am locked up and I was stuck without transportation. I had to get to work the following day which was 30 miles away and needed to get back to my college on Tuesday which was 60 miles away. I was stressed and worried with a horrible attitude. In one foul swoop, my life felt like it was coming apart.  I didn’t know what to do.


I told myself that God had a plan, and that I just needed to trust him. Sunday, someone loaned me their vehicle to get to work. Monday morning I got a call and Tuesday morning before heading to college, I was signing a title to a new car. Talk about perfect timing! God is faithful even when we are not.

God loves us! So why do we worry? Why don’t we trust Him? With our family? Money? Decisions? Life?

In Matthew 6:24-35, Jesus tells us not to worry, about what we will eat, wear, not even about the next day, because each day has enough trouble of it’s own. 

Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”

God loves you and will always be faithful.  Cast off your worry and trust in Him!
