Matthew 6:25,27 ” Therefore I tell you don’t worry about your life…Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”

I don’t know about you, but I worry about the silliest things! Especially at night… I’ll lie there, my anxiety ever increasing as I stress over really stupid things…things that I have absolutely no control over, but I think I do. Does all my worrying change anything? No! Is worrying wrong? You bet it is! Philippians 6:6-7 tells us to not worry about anything. But even deeper, worrying shows my faltering faith and unbelief that God can take care of all the details in my life…both big and small. In Matthew 13, The Parable of the Sower, Jesus warns us about worrying when He said, “The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the Word, but the worries of this life choke it out, making it unfruitful.” Worrying is a distraction…it takes my eyes off the Lord and onto the uncertainties of life of which I have no control over. So by not allowing myself to go down that path of anxious worry, I instead place my trust in God and the true One who can actually do something about it.
