Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing

Quit worrying about everything. There are so many things in this life that can cause us concern. We stress about so many things, each and every day. Where are we going to find our next rent payment? Who are we supposed to date? How are we going to get everything done at work? What are we supposed to be doing with our lives? The weight of decisions in our life pile up; can be crushing if we allow it. But God tells us not to worry about what tomorrow will bring (Matthew 6:34). Leave the big stuff to Him. While it is necessary for us to make choices in this life, and ultimately put a little elbow grease into what happens next; if we look to God for His Will and follow the path He makes for us, He will open the doors necessary to move forward. He loves us too much to crush us with the weight of our worries (1 Peter 5:7). If we cast those cares on Him, He will guide us through and give us peace (Phillippians 4:6-7).

We need to realize that there is absolutely nothing we can do to make things work exactly how we want. If we freak out every time something goes wrong, or every time we don’t know what to do next, we will exhaust ourselves in panic. The world is beyond our ability to control. Luckily, it is within God’s. If we simply trust Him and seek His Will in all situations, He will provide EVERYTHING we need. Why waste our strength on things that are out of our hands? Instead, let’s put our energy into seeking God.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.- Corrie Ten Boom
