what ya worrying about?

We worry about so many things.  But the fact is that when we worry, we say that we don't trust God.  I meet people daily who are in tough place and can't seem to make sense out of their situation, their pain or the trouble that plaques their life.  

The biggest piece of this is faith.  Does our faith impact how we feel, how we respond or how we deal with others  What ya worrying about?

"So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?'  These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.  Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.  "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.

Those verses are huge.  That is, if we believe them. 

Does what we are worrying about really matter?  In ten days or in ten years will it make a difference?  For more of us the answer is no.  But there are some of those worries that are huge, they are life and death, they are painful and threatening.  Yet God says in these verses to seek Him.  Above all else simply go after God because He knows everything.

The key to worrying less ... seek God.

Answer this: what ya worrying about?  Take a few minutes and ask God to take your worry and do something with it that you can't do.  God cares.  So what ya worrying about can be dealt with in productive ways.  Give God a chance.  Believe what God says!

Matthew 11:28-30 nasb

"Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

This is so for me at this moment. I definitely am worrying about something that I need to leave in the hands of God.

Thanks and God Bless!
