As for me I'm in Your hands - Carly Santoro
Updated: Feb 4
Carly Santoro is a fantastic basketball player. She has worked hard on the court to be so. But she has had numerous set backs and doubts along the way.
One Bible verse that she continually fell back on is Jeremiah 26:14. This verse is all about the release of ourselves to God, and placing our trust in Him. His plans are greater than ours, and He will take care of you. Release of your worry and thoughts to Him is key to peace.
Matthew 6:25-34 discusses this clearly as well. Jesus was teaching the crowds and said...
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Carly lived this in different parts of her life, and God has always come through for her in big ways!
