“The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:5,6
As an obstetrician I am honored to be present at the most joyful of all
occasions, a child’s birth. God is at work in these moments and there is
much joy all around. But with this joy inevitably comes some anxieties
and as a parent I can attest that they remain well into the child’s teen
years. The journey of parenthood is filled with many ups and downs.
Here too God is at work as we usher our children towards a fulfilling life.
Often in our parenting when the children have worries we say, “Let go
and let God.” Upon looking back at many of these moments, they have
been the times when we have experienced the comfort of being guided.
Dear God, may we turn to you in all times of joy, sorrow and
anxiousness for you comfort us and make us whole. Amen
