Dear, Heavenly, Father,

As the week winds down, I come to you with a mind filled with anxious thoughts.  I know that you’ve told me not to be anxious about anything – that you’re in control and with me every step of the way –  that worry can do nothing as far as changing the way things turn out.  Your plan for our lives has already been written.

Still I read the headlines of things happening globally and it troubles me.  Are these signs of the end of times?  You have told us to be ready – to prepare for your second coming, yet I hold onto fear like a security blanket.

I hear of all the local disaster within my own community. There are numerous murders, assaults, domestic violence, sex trafficking and so much evil that it makes me think it can’t get much worse.

I see friends suffering with health issues, financial difficulties, marital problems and so much more and all I can do is sympathize with their pain.  I try to encourage with words from your Holy Word, but it seems so inconsequential at times.

As I approach your Sabbath day, help me to continue to put my trust in you.  You have never failed me in my life, no matter how difficult things have been.  Your love, your consistence, your faithfulness never changes.   I can count on your steady hand to guide me.  I know you will provide a way for your final plan to be accomplished.  Help me to accept your will and give me the strength to face the coming week with confidence. Amen!


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. You have much wisdom Kathy. It is hard not to fear with all the news stories you hear today. I love the line a pastor always tells us. “God wins in the end.” It does settle the worry.
