Today. I want to talk about today. Do you ever feel that tomorrow is right around the corner? Do you feel like you need to stay up late so you can get all of your papers done in time? Or like you need to think for hours about what you are going to wear on that date tomorrow? Maybe you are up refusing to sleep so that appointment will not come. Guys, I have these thoughts and worries too! We could spend all night worrying and wondering what will happen, but we need to stop. We need to stop worrying. When we are afraid it weighs on our souls. When we worry it turns to fear, then we become sad, next depression, and finally we become numb to all feelings. Now some of you have had this happen before or you are going through it right now. If you have gone through it then you know it is a very, very hard road. If you feel that you are going through this I want to tell you that there is a Hope. This Hope is Jesus Christ. Jesus even touched on this because He knew that we would worry. Matthew 6:34 says, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring it’s own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” We need to rise up above the standards of the world. The world will worry about all kinds of things….from the ice caps melting to the new president. The world will worry about everything! We need to keep our thoughts fixed on Jesus and His beautiful Father as Isaiah 26:3-4 reminds us. God is our rock! I want to give you some tips. Think about them when you worry next time.
What? What are you worrying about?
Worth it? Is it worth it? When you worry about it that will take up valuable time that you could use to impact someone.
Why? Why are you worrying about it? God has it.
Don’t. Don’t keep it. Give it to God so He can take care of it. He wants to take your burdens so you need to give Him all of them. All the worries, anxieties, and stress.
So let’s think about today. Live moment to moment.
Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
People will see you with no worries and will want to see how you do it. You are the Light!!
Much Love, KM
