Noah is anxious about school next year…already…summer hasn’t even begun. He doesn’t make friends very easily. I don’t doubt that he could…he just chooses not to. He calls it loyalty. He supposedly has trust issues.
‘Noah, how about you try getting to know one new person this week’ I say…multiple times a year.
‘But how would I know if I could trust them mom?’ he’d ask…each and every time I ask.
You’d think he’s been through horrendous heartache and hurt with his apprehension to make new friends.
This school year however, he and his best friend made new friends. All those new friends are gonna be starting new schools in the fall. Hence the worry and anxiety.
While in my quiet time today as I prayed for the boys, an old hymn came to mind.
‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise
Just to know ‘thus saith the Lord’
Sometimes we face worry, anxiety, disappointment even hurt…so comforting to know that there’s someone I can just take at His Word. Oh Noah…hope you do the same.
Also I love these shoes and that dog who never leaves my side except when I’m sitting comfortably and he wants to be let in and then out and then in and then out and then in again. I’m convinced he has short term memory.
