While on vacation we tried to leave the worries behind but the cracked windshield saga on the rental car and several other things snuck their way into the worry portion of our minds. But when we went to San Diego with our cousins for a long weekend, it seemed all of that went away. We decided there was nothing we could do with any of our worries so we left them behind and had a great time in San Diego.
While the guys golfed, the girls sunned on the beautiful Del Coronado beach. We ate good food and yummy gelato; laughed until we cried; relaxed and enjoyed the beauty of the island.
On our way home from the airport, Roger and I talked about how relaxed we were when we left all those worries behind. We talked about how that freedom we felt in San Diego and deciding not to worry that weekend is the feeling God wants for us everyday!!
Jesus even talked to the people in His day about worry in Matthew 6:25-34 advising them not to worry because it does no good. We have to trust that God will take care of us. We can give our worries every single minute right to Jesus and feel the freedom that we felt in San Diego!
I’m gonna try it again today! Give up your worries and feel the peace of freedom from Jesus. Jesus and the beaches of San Diego… don’t worry… be happy! I like the sound of it. Won’t you let Him be your San Diego today?
