Why worry?

I often need to confess and repent before God my tendency to step into a place of worrying and fear. Not only is there no reason to fret, for He is always there and in control, but such activity merely wastes time and energy and drains out of me the life of joy and excitement my Father desires me to experience day by day. Thankfully His mercies are new every morning and each day He gives me another chance to walk in obedience and faith.

I pray that I will step out of His way to allow Him to perfect in me that which will bring glory to His Name.

"Has anyone by fussing before the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? If fussing can't even do that, why fuss at all? Walk into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They don't fuss with their appearance—but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? Luke 12:25-28 The Message Bible
