When we feel out of control, we worry. We worry that we will not get what we need or want or desire or deserve. We worry that we don’t have enough, that we can’t do enough, that we won’t be enough. And our worry about all that gets in the way of how God intends us to live, how God means for us to be human.
God’s invitation is there for us. We don’t need to be anxious. Not because we’re in control, but because we recognize that we aren’t. It’s humbling to need God. It is humbling. But it’s so freeing… to seek first, the kingdom of God.
