Don't Worry

by Laura, 11, New York

My dad is in the car sales business. Recently, he didn't sell very much for a couple of weeks, and we were kind of struggling financially. Then one night my mom, sister and I all prayed that my dad would sell a lot. The next day, my dad came home so happy because he had sold three cars! We were so thankful.

I learned that you really need to pray and tell God everything. Don't try to hide anything from God because you can't! If you are frustrated or upset about something, just tell God about it. Don't be embarrassed. . . . He will help you.

If you have a problem, don't keep worrying about it; pray about it. If it's not worth praying about, it's not worth worrying about.

Tell a personal story and share what God has taught you through it. Keep your devotional thoughts to 300 words or less. Send your devos to: "Look Up," Clubhouse Magazine, Colorado Springs, CO 80995-7460. Be sure to include your name, birth date and address.
