Committing Our Loved Ones to the Lord’s Care

Stonewall Jackson had a special relationship with his wife Anna. The mighty Jackson must have felt helpless to care for his wife while consumed in the cause of the South. Yet, he did not rely on human ability; he relied on the power of God to take care of his beloved Anna. Jackson wrote the following to his wife:

April 25th, 1857,

It is a great comfort to me to know that although I am not with you, yet you’re in the hands of one who will not permit any evil to come nigh you. What a consoling thought it is to know that we may, with perfect confidence, commit all our friends in Jesus to the care of our Heavenly Father, with an assurance that all will be well with them! …

When I was young, every Saturday or Sunday afternoon in the fall we played football in our neighbor’s long, flat yard. One day a huge storm moved to our area; I noticed hundreds of sparrows flying to a huge cedar. They happily chirped inside, feeling secure from the coming elements.

God, who is so interested in the intricate details of this universe, is just as mindful of us. In times of distress, we can run to him in prayer, and he will secure us from the coming storms.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7
