Jump to God

Think about a time when you were really scared. For me, it was last year. I was home alone on a Tuesday morning doing school work (I’m homeschooled). I’m just minding my business reading, and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise. I don’t know what the noise was, but it was really loud.

At first my mind goes to the worst, I start thinking, “Oh my goodness is there someone in this house?? Am I going to get kidnapped? Do I need to call my mom?” Instead of calling my mom though, I wait, and wait. And I hear more noises. That’s when I start getting really scared.

So I call my mom. While I’m on the phone with her she makes me walk into the living room to prove to myself that there isn’t anyone there.

Sure enough, there wasn’t. But I was still scared even though I saw with my own eyes nothing was in my house. Come to find out later, all the noises were from a stray cat climbing on the fence right outside my room.

So that’s my scary story, but think about yours. Did you jump to the worst conclusion like me? Did you still think something was wrong even though you saw there wasn’t? What if instead of jumping to the worst, we jumped to God? What if instead of not trusting our own eyes, we trust God instead? What if, we let go of our fears and just pray?

Romans 10:13 says, “For anyone who calls on the Father’s name, shall be saved.”

Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not worry about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”

I don’t know about y’all, but every time I read those verses I feel peace. I feel safe, and I feel comforted knowing that God is there. He won’t abandon you and leave you scared of the stray cat. Instead, He will walk with you into the living room. He will take the place of the eyes you don’t trust, and be the Savior you should trust. Don’t jump to the worst. Instead, jump into God’s word, and talk with Him.

The next time you get scared, just pray. It helps more than anything.
