Last night we had a really strong thunderstorm roll through our area. It started to thunder a bit while the kids were outside playing. By time they had got their bath and got tucked in bed...it really picked up. At about 9:15 pm a huge loud clap of thunder shook our house. I instantly heard Grace in her room crying for me. I went in to get her and she had tears streaming down her little cheeks. She said "Mommy, I tried to pray but it wouldn't go away!"
This morning I was telling her teacher Mrs. Linda the story. She said yesterday during school (during another thunder storm) she tried to explain to the kids that thunder will not hurt you, that it's just a loud noise. But, if they get scared, they could pray that the Lord will relieve them of their fear. Well, I guess Grace not only wanted the Lord to relieve her of her fear but she wanted Him to take away the storm too! :-)
What an example she is! The Lord doesn't care how small or big our fears are! He wants us to take them all to him.
God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him.
1 Peter 5:7
