Prayer of a foolish child

Lord, You have created all things, all people, all life–and I’m worried about where I’m going to live.  You sustain all things, all people, all life–and I worry about how we’ll pay our bills now and in the near future.  You spoke life into being and uphold it with Your strong right hand–and I worry about whether my house will sell.  You created new life in me when I was dead in sin; You sustain that new life every day by bringing me more into Your likeness, promising that Your plan for me in all my weakness is good–and I am foolish enough to wonder if I could come up with a better plan.  Oh, Lord, how patient and loving You are with Your silly little child.  Forgive my foolish, selfish, worrying heart.  I rest in that awesome right hand today.
