Every have one of those days. Weeks. Months???

I'm a worrier. I was born with the gene, I think. So, as much as I fight it, it keeps coming back.

But these verses are a comfort and a reminder.

Matthew 6:25-34 "So I tell you to stop worrying about what you will eat, drink, or wear. Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothes?

"Look at the birds. They don't plant, harvest, or gather the harvest into barns. Yet, your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth more than they? "Can any of you add a single hour to your life by worrying?

"And why worry about clothes? Notice how the flowers grow in the field. They never work or spin yarn for clothes. But I say that not even Solomon in all his majesty was dressed like one of these flowers. That's the way God clothes the grass in the field. Today it's alive, and tomorrow it's thrown into an incinerator. So how much more will he clothe you people who have so little faith?

"Don't ever worry and say, 'What are we going to eat?' or 'What are we going to drink?' or 'What are we going to wear?' Everyone is concerned about these things, and your heavenly Father certainly knows you need all of them.

But first, be concerned about his kingdom and what has his approval. Then all these things will be provided for you. "So don't ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. ''

Wow. I AM being a little selfish when I worry. If I would instead focus on the Kingdom of God, God would worry about us! What a comfort!

Thanks Sarah! It is a wonderful reminder. I may have to keep coming back and rereading it!
