Why should i be surprised?

God knows what i struggle with. He knows that i was struggling with worry this morning. Hello, my name is Elisa and i am a worrier. :) Why should i be surprised, even shocked that when i pulled up an online devotional site that this is part of what today's devotional was...

Throughout life, we are all faced with fears of the unknown and personal problems that seem hopeless or scary, and it is so easy to get caught up in our emotions, forgetting to look for God. In some situations, we may even find ourselves wondering if God is really aware of our problems, and doubt if He really cares, but 1 Peter 5:7 is a sweet reminder that He is aware, He does care, and He is with us.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Why should i be surprised that it felt like this devotional was written specifically for me this morning? God knew exactly what i needed and why am i surprised?

I am a worrier too. Especially with the bad roads these days. In the bad weather I listen to Genger Millermon's cd and I think it helps. :)
