Sunday Scriptures — Let Jesus Handle It

By Sandy Kirby Quandt

One year when I sent my accountant all the statements I thought he would need to prepare my taxes, I told him I hoped I’d given him everything in good order. He replied that no matter what I’d sent and how I’d prepared it, it would be better than the shoe boxes of receipts his mother handed him each year to sort through.

Mike’s mother had confidence in him to take everything she turned over, sort it all out, and make sense of the mess. She never worried about handing it to him in a neat package.

So I’m thinking…that’s exactly the way we need to depend on Jesus. We need to have confidence in him to take all our mess, all our heartache, all our failures and disappointments, sort it all out and make some sort of sense of it.

We don’t need to worry whether we’ve bundled up our worries, broken places, and hurts into a nice neat package for Jesus to look at.

Jesus is the professional. He’ll take what we give him, no matter how messy it is, sort through it, and make it all right.

We can count on it.

Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. 1 Peter 5:7 (TLB)

I wish you well.
