Why waste?

Psalm 34:4-6

I sought the Lord, and he answered me,
    and delivered me from all my fears.
Look to him, and be radiant;
    so your[a] faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor soul cried, and was heard by the Lord,
    and was saved from every trouble.

worry is a waste

I don’t know about you but I tend to worry. I know that I should turn my worries over to the Lord and let them go but I am not good at it. I will turn it over and then pick it back up again. I do this over and over. How ridiculous this is!

God will hear us when we cry to him. He will answer. Don’t keep picking things back up. Worry is a waste.

God is in charge

Today I have some worries that I need to let go. It is so easy to get wrapped up in worry and it does no good at all.  Jesus reminds us that there is no reason to worry. God is in charge.

God is in control

Matthew 6:25-34 

[ Do Not Worry ] “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?
