When I worry about our adult kids

and their income, or our OWN income, in the midst of this pandemic, I might as well be accusing Jesus of not knowing what He’s doing in their lives, or ours, of Him not having a genius plan for each of us that He’s right now executing, of Him being untrustworthy in the process. Oh me of little faith. Oh me of great confidence my human-wisdom knows best how He needs to be orchestrating their lives, and ours. How am I any different in my worrying, than some atheist parent? Uncurious and unexpectant about what Jesus is going to do NEXT, in me, them, others, circumstances.

Grace is for parents of adult children, or any-age children, and also for non-parents, who are worriers — failures at trusting Jesus. Grace flows downhill to us Christians at the bottom who KNOW we are failures, and KNOW we have fresh need of a Savior, to rescue us from our Christian atheism. The kindest thing Jesus ever does for us kids of His, is to freshly open our eyes, convict us of the sin to which we’re currently blind, so we can freshly CONFESS and be momentarily unburdened. Ahhh.
