Teen Tuesday—Stop Worrying, Start Praying

Question: What do we worry about most? Answer: About our relationships with our parents, brothers and sisters, friends and acquaintances. And we can’t stop there! Oh no, we’ve also got to worry about relationships with our enemies, about the mean girls—and about knowing what to do and how to handle problem people.

And as if that’s not enough, we worry about what others think of us, what we look like—if we are too fat or too thin, if we are pretty enough. And don’t leave out worrying about boyfriends, dating, the future … nicely topped off with worrying about our school­work and grades, about getting up in front of others, about an upcoming social event.

 So how do you stop worrying? You start praying!

Present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, 
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Present your requests to God. Pray from your heart … and with all your heart! Pray, pray, pray! Keep nothing back, great or small. God wants to hear your every concern! So present them to Him. Leave them in the lap of the Almighty. Let Him wrap you up in the comforting truth that He cares for you and will take care of you..

Who was Mary, Mother of God? by Elizabeth George
Who was Mary, Mother of Jesus?

by Elizabeth George December 06, 2022

Consider God’s choice of Mary as the mother of His Son. Mary was young and probably not from a prominent or wealthy family. The Bible doesn’t give any details about her physical appearance or information about her father and mother. We are not told of any outstanding characteristics Mary had… except of her love for God and her deep trust in Him.
