See how easy that was?

Jeremiah 32:27 "I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?"

God's been dealing with me lately about my struggles with fear and anxiety. Today He did it in such a sweet way. For several days I've been trying to find the power cord for my netbook, the battery of which was completely dead. I was getting so frustrated with the time that I was wasting looking for it when I kept coming up empty. Today I just said, "Lord, I'm just going to stop looking for it. There are so many other things that I need to do. Please just show me where it is." Seriously, it could not have been more than an hour later that I just came across it in a place that I definitely did not expect it to be. I was grateful to God for His answer to prayer, but even more for His tender encouragement that followed. I laughed at His sense of humor immediately after I found it and then I felt as if He were saying to me, "See how easy that was for Me? Everything else that concerns you is just as easy for Me." Wow! Yes, I definitely need to hang onto that!!
