Worry is sadly a part of life. It shouldn’t be, but it is. We’re human after all and sometimes we just can’t trust SOMEONE else to “worry” for us so we hoard the worrying and do it all on our own. I’m trying not to be this way. I’m really trying to let God look after the details: appraisals, banking, realtors. It’s hard because it looks like nothing is getting done but I know that behind the scenes God is at work even though I don’t really understand his methods.
Matthew 6:25″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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look 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? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 28″And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If 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, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Lord, help me to trust in you. Look after our needs and our worries; show us that you have it all under control.
