Stressing

Friday evening and I'm wondering why I'm struggling to focus. Irritated with myself. So much I want to do.
Then I realise that I am stressing - if only quietly to myself. Methodist Church Conference this weekend. Stationing for next year should be finalised. They have a great website http://www.mcsa-conference.org.za/. I keep hoping that the list of stations will suddenly appear there. Nothing I can do about anything. No point in worrying. I'm not worrying. But I can't focus.
Eldest daughter is at her Matric Dance. She was pretty stressed. I guess I'm worrying about her too. For no reason. She can look after herself. She's gone with a great young guy from church. But, one does worry.
Sometimes I do forget to have faith. Maybe more often than sometimes. Yet I do believe with some conviction that God is with me, with my daughter, with Conference.
He is so very good to me and my family. How can I forget to trust him?

Maybe you're just tired. Maybe you've done more than you think you have. Re faith, I wonder whether there are degrees of faith, or whether "faith as a mustard seed" delights God, and brings His response of blessing. P.S. I re-started my blog. http://thomasscarborough.blogspot.com

Thanks Thomas. I did go and see your blog - but you'd already blogged so much that you'd gone into archive and I felt embarrassed saying 'welcome back'! But - welcome back!
