Matthew 6:34

So today I came across this amazing bible verse that really spoke to me.  It is Matthew 6:34

  I am the biggest worrier there is.  I get this worrying trait from my momma! Love her dearly but sometimes this worry makes me have anxiety.  Like a lot of it!  I struggle with it all day everyday whether it is about money, the weather, or something that is taking place a month from now.  I worry about everything.  When we went to the zoo the other day, DJ was holding Jackson up in the Penguin and Puffer exhibit close to some water where Jackson could see the animals.  What runs through my head? I start freaking that he is going to drop him in the water and I'm going to have to jump in in ice cold water to save my son.  Worry much!?! This is how my head works and it drives me insane.  DJ would never have or never even could have dropped him in that water.  So needless to say I worry too much.

Worry is a part of our everyday life.  We all are guilty of it but why? Why do we worry?  Will worrying make the situation better? No, in most cases it makes it worse.  It makes your mind wander further and further into that little "worry" that is going on inside of your head.  We all need to remember to trust that the God who knows our names has our tomorrow's or the next weeks or even months in His hands. 

Exercise your faith on a daily basis.  When we worry it shows distrust in God.  Focusing on tomorrow or next week or next month only robs us of today for we do not know if today will be our last.  Live life to the fullest.  
Matthew 6:25-34 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

"I can do all things through him who strengthens me". Philippians 4:13
