When I checked in on Facebook just now a daughter-in-law and a granddaughter-in-law had posted scriptures about not being anxious and trusting in God, knowing nothing about my appointment. Earlier, as I sat in the waiting room waiting for my turn I figured I had 30 minutes to read, so I opened up my copy of Three Cups of Tea, which I just started yesterday, and the first thing that met my eye was a quote at the beginning of the chapter.
Why ponder thus the future to foresee,
and jade thy brain to vain perplexity?
Cast off thy care, leave Allah's plans to him--
He formed them all without consulting thee.
-Omar Khayyam, The Rubaiyat-
Of course, Omar's Allah borrowed that idea from the God of Israel. But it served to remind me of Jesus's many reminders to cast our cares on Him. As it turned out, the patient before me had cancelled, so I was called in immediately and that was all I got to read...but it was enough!
I'm counting my blessings and expecting a good report. And now I'm off to read some blogs!
