Trust don't Worry!
Are you a worrier? I tend to worry about everything... finances, what I will eat, my health, and what the dog thinks. This past week I had an EKG that was normal, thank GOD! It was one more worry off of my brain so to speak!
But the Bible warns us of worry... Matthew 6:27 says: "who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" The stress that worry can cause will have consequences on our prcious health. It can be connected to: heart trouble, high blood pressure, headaches, and stomach disorders. Therefore, to worry... is to lose. Worry takes us out of the precious present! Living in the present with GOD and HIS love, should be a priority for us. Each day given to us, should be lived as if the next day didn't exist... in other words, we should live each day as if it were our last.
You know what we all have in common? Each and every one of us has a day on GOD'S calendar that will be our last day here on earth. None of us knows what the next day will bring, because today has enough troubles of it's own. We should realize every morning that we are given a gift of 24 hours... 24 hours to demonstrate our faith in GOD... to live for HIM... to do something:
Reach out to someone
Prasie our LORD with someone
By "doing" we show our faith... by worrying we show our lack of faith! GOD does not want us to worry. HE wants us to live in HIS love, joy, and mercy every day. Let us continue to walk forward with confidence in GOD... a confidence and trust in our day, and all the days given to us by HIM!
MATTHEW 6:34 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself."
