It can start with a simple conversation, a glance at the latest bill, a feeling that something is not right and the reality is that we all do it. But what does worrying about our lives really cost us? Can it add more hours to our life – The bible does not think so. (Matthew 6:27) The bible tells us not worry about our life and this is something I struggle with constantly in my life, but when I go back and reread Matthew 6:25-34 I can see myself clearly in the written word. The bible tells us not to worry about these things:
What you will eat or drink
What you will wear
The reality is that we are not in control of our own lives and often events and situations that we don’t plan for take over our lives; it is often in these circumstances that we turn back to God and the pages of the bible and find ourselves asking a major question “Does God really have a purpose for us and if God does; is God really in control of our lives?” When we worry too much often we become burdened by our own worry and we take the worry with us everywhere we go. When was the last time you asked God to take the burden or worry into his hands? It is not as hard as it seems all you have to do is say out loud “God I can not handle this worry/burden anymore and I give it to you!” often God is waiting for us to do this. You will not believe how light you will feel after doing this.
May God bless you.
