Have you ever worried? I certainly have.
I love this picture. Pretty flowers with a beautiful, blue sky background. However, life is not always this pretty. Sometimes it is downright ugly. There is much trouble. But worrying about the trouble (especially tomorrow’s trouble) doesn’t help me. In fact, it can be a great hindrance to what I need to accomplish today. Worry also doubts God’s ability to provide.
I am thankful God has given us passages like Matthew 6:25-34. My loving Heavenly Father takes care of the lilies and the birds. He will take care of me. He has promised. God always (yes, always) keeps His promises.
I am thankful for God’s promises. They are encouraging, but sometimes I still worry. The best remedy I know for worry is pleading in prayer. I know God will listen and provide.
