Worrying.

I had to be reminded that God has everything in control. So why do I need to worry? Someone so dear to my heart reminded me last night that God calls us not to worry. 

In Matthew 6:25 it says "for this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?"

Food? Clothing? This hasn't left my mind since last night. What am I worried about right now? How much clothes I can fit, missing my family etc. but food? I'm not suppose to worry about what I should be eating or if I will get food the next day. This is crazy to the typical North American women like myself. Usually we would think it is totally alright to worry if you have no money, no clothes and no food. But yet, the Lord still calls us to not worry but to trust in him.

I'm worried about my future, if I will attend university when I get back, and about my relationship with someone and how I can prepare for it all. The Lord has been on me in these past 24 hours reminding me that he calls me not to worry. So today I'm giving it to God once again. As my bible is open my worries are being put on those precious pages of scripture knowing that the Lord is in control and I have nothing to fear. I am so thankful to know a God that wants me not to worry- what an incredible God he is! I stand in awe time and time again.

So today, Lord I'm going die to myself and let you live through me not worrying about my future- what  a beautiful challenge.
