There are days in my life when worry overtakes me. I often wonder why it’s so much a part of who I am. You could say, I’m the typical Jewish mother – even though I’m not Jewish.

Jesus was, however and maybe that’s why he spent a lot of time talking to His people about this dreadful trait. It’s easy to tell someone not to worry, but that isn’t going to stop them from worrying. Besides, we may not have experienced what they are going through.

Jesus walked in our shoes. He knows all our frailties and shortcomings. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus invites us to,

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

He isn’t just talking about physical rest. He’s telling us that He gives comfort for our souls as well. I will undoubtedly continue to worry until I die, but my worries don’t have to depress me or dominate my thinking. I boldly thank God for giving rest to my weary mind and body, but mostly for relieving the doubts, worries and fears of my soul.

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
