“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

– 1 Peter 5:7

Hours after Typhoon Mangkhut (Ompong in the Philippines) lashed in the areas of Northern Luzon. I was worried about my relatives and friends in Laoag City. After all, that city suffered a direct hit from the storm.

So I decided to give a phone call to them. However, communication lines were down. It was not until the next day in the afternoon. Despite the agony of worrying, I was relieved to find out that were all safe.

In our lives, we will be facing situations were we will be holding our breaths from cash that was not dispensed by the ATM to medical examinations. In this situations we are called to practice our faith and hope for the best. Sometimes, being still, knowing that everything is under God’s control will help us to feel His presence and assurance more than anything else.

Our lives will be constantly bombarded with worries, agonies and troubles. God did not wish for us to be burdened with these. Instead, He invites us to sit down and let Him do the rest, trusting His name for everything we do. Amen.


Faith works best when we trust Him more than anything else.
