“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength” – Corrie ten Boom.
This is so true! How many times have you worried & fretted about this or that and the very thing you stressed about never even happened? Or, the results weren’t nearly as terrible as you’d imagined them to be.
Wasted energy. Wasted time. Those are the situations when I needed to go straight to God at the beginning of my worry. It would have saved myself much heartache & headache.
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows” – Luke 12:6.
Thank you, God, for caring for me. I find it hard to imagine that you care for me so much. But it says so in your word. So I believe it!
Is there something in your life right now that causes big-time stress? Maybe it’s money issues, loss of a close friendship, or an upcoming job interview? Can you tell it to Jesus & ask for his peace that passes all understanding?
