Don’t worry!

How often have we heard that phrase “Don’t Worry?”  We’ve heard it in the popular song from the late 1980’s and we are quick to give it as advice but why is it so hard to heed to?  Is it because we’re really not sure that everything will really be okay?

I love in Matthew 6 when Jesus tells us not to worry. He goes on to tell us to consider the birds and lily’s of the field, how God loves us much more than them and He takes care of them so surely He will take care of us.  I love that! Have you ever watched a bird, yes it looks for food but also knows that it will be taken care of.  I don’t imagine the flowers or birds are stressing over where the money for the bills are going to come from or the next meal.  They know they will be taken care of.  We are told in scripture that God meets all of our needs according to His riches in glory, He wants to provide for us and take care of us– just like we want to bless our children.

Imagine for a moment how much sweeter our days would be, if we focused on the promise that God will take care of us and meet our needs.  I’m praying that as we go to sleep tonight, we can have sweet sleep and rest in the promise that even tho we may not know how or when we know that God is taking care of it all.

Be blessed!!!
