I had a very good start to this day. But beyond that I know I will have some difficult things to deal with throughout the day. So I can live in the joy that the same God who started my day off right can finish it well, or I can abandon God's promise of daily faithfulness and lose the joy of His mercies which are new every morning. Worry never solved a single problem, never made a single dollar, never salvaged a broken relationship, and never broke an addiction. Worry chases away contentment and the peace that comes with it. I have read this before, and thought I would share it with you.
"Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they? Can any of you add a single cubit to his height by worrying? And why do you worry about clothes? Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow: they don’t labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you—you of little faith? So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For the idolaters eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." - Jesus (Matthew 6:25-34)
You need to hear that today. I know because we all should hear that everyday. Here are three things everyone reading this can do right now.
Seek God's rule.
Start trusting Him.
