Let’s Talk About Worry

“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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”-Matthew 6:25-27

So there it is! And yet, I still do it—WORRY! WHY?!?! I sat here this morning praying for direction and wisdom. Praying that I can see why things are working out like they are. I was lead to this scripture. And it hit me."Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"-Matthew 6:27

WOW! For someone like me that feels I must be in control and have a plan at all times, this is hard! But God has left this message for us! I have trouble sometimes balancing being responsible and active in fulfilling our needs and just trusting that God will provide. I think that we must do our part! But we don’t need to worry or try to PLAN out the next months and how will we make it. If we do our part then we can have confidence in that trust! We may not know HOW we will make it or HOW we will pay for something but GOD does!

I think of the song– “Trust and Obey” That is what he asks of us. If we follow his will and trust COMPLETELY, (not just sort of trust!)  he will full fill our every need!

What a blessing! What a peace in knowing this! Thank you God!

  • Yea, I’m with you. I still worry. I have this dumb need to feel like I’m in control when in all reality, I’ve never been in control! Sigh…

    Worrying is a natural human trait. I think that is why it addressed with such clarity in the scriptures. We do have to completely trust God to supply our needs. He always does. Trusting him is the only way to find true peace. Thanks for reminding me.
