Episode 6 Wait Without Worry

Everyone’s going through something and no one gets out of life mess-free. Whether it’s tragedy, addiction, mental illness, stress, or something else — you will tackle many phases of life that are tough, and answers to “why?” may be limited. It’s hard — but you’re not alone. 

At the age of 22, Calli was paralyzed after a car accident. It’s been a little over a year since the accident and there are still many unknowns for her. She isn’t sure whether she’ll be able to walk again. Or drive. Or move out of her parent’s home, even though she’s now a college graduate. Your story will be different, but can you relate to the flood of unknowns about your future? 

Despite the unknowns, Calli continues to deepen her prayer life and change how she expects things from God. She isn’t worried about tomorrow because God has promised her (and us) we don’t need to be. “…Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own,” (Matthew 6:34, ESV). 

Today, let’s listen to a story of a young woman who is learning to take each day one day at a time because God has promised he is in control of the future.
