Do Not Worry

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Matthew 6:34

I am thankful everyday for what God has given me. Not only thankful, but happy and content because everything I have comes from Him. But in those times of being happy, unknown circumstances come and then I worry.

I try not to worry because I know that I am not in control. My husband and I have two adult daughters and they are quite capable on their own, but I always pray for safe travels for them everyday. Giving my worries over to God is what I and you need to do because He is the one that has the power of control and responsibility. We are not in control in every aspect of our life.

Worrying to much not only puts stress on us, but puts our focus in the opposite direction of God. If we continue to worry, our faith is lacking and Satan sweeps in because we are trusting in our own abilities than our faith in God. For the things that we cannot control, we must give it over to God.

I don’t know about you, but when I worry to much I cannot sleep. Not only do I lose sleep, but my body tenses up. The amount of pressure we put on ourselves is unhealthy and it reflects how we trust in God. I now do my best to give everything over to God and let Him do the things I cannot.

The next time unknown circumstances come your way or life is a daily struggle, give yourself over to God. Do not worry, let God take care of it. He provides the strength that we need and all things are possible with Him. God does listen. Pray!
