Today at church at the top of the bulletin I read “Matthew 6:33-34”. This wasn’t the text for the sermon, maybe it was from last week (we weren’t there). So, as I sat there waiting for the service to begin, my curiosity got the best of me. I looked it up and this is what I found:
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.
This really made so much sense to me as I tend to be a worry wart. I worry about paying the bills and I worry about my husband and the girls’ safety. My parents, my sister, my nieces and nephew. I worry about the effect that this world is having on my children and I worry that I’m not doing a good enough job as a mother. I worry about trying to start college funds and the fact that we have nothing set back for retirement. Worry, worry, worry…
But, the last part is so true, each day does have enough trouble of it’s own, why am I worrying so much about other things? I’m gonna work really hard at not worrying too much and just trusting God more. I know I have to worry about things to a certain extent, but I want to try to start praying every time I feel the worry creeping in. I think that’s a good start.
