As sport teams march down the field or court toward their goal, the prevailing questions are “Whose Got the Ball?” Who’s covering it? Who’s throwing it? Who’s ready to catch it? Who’s guarding it? If the team trusts their coach and pays attention to his calls then the play will go well. If not, worry ensues and confusion is eminent.
The classic 1945 vaudeville comedy routine by Abbott and Costello called "Who's on first?" is a knee-slapping sketch. It tickles the funny bone and reflects much adieu about nothing. To view it click below.
My worry can easily take a similar path. I talk about my concern, try to explain it while rationalizing why it is okay to be worried about it. I carry it like a torch as if worry will solve the issue and then, like Abbott and Costello, simply give up, short on faith and long on worry.
Corrie ten Boom penned these wise words: "Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength.”
Which brings me to the best part – the sweet reminder of WHO'S ON FIRST…
“Worry is falling short on Faith…
it gives small problems big shadows.”
“Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God's glorious standard…” Romans 3:23
Thankfully God doesn’t depend on our perfectness, rather He depends on our faith in Him by casting all of our worries His way ... putting Him on first!
Blessings…as you turn your worries into prayers!
