Competing Concerns

Do you have concerns that try to win, to gain ground and take over? My concerns can cause competition. The competition for my heart. Will my heart win or will my concerns consume me and take me down?

We all have concerns, “Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:34) Some concerns are huge, others are the every day kind.

It made me think of God’s concern. He is concerned too. His highest concern is that we’d draw close to Him with all our concerns. That we’d believe He has us covered no matter what.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)

Lord, our concerns compete, they try to sweep over us.
May they draw us TO You; not taking us down, but taking us to our knees and into Your arms. Amen.
