Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31
Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He’s going to be up all night anyway. –Mary C. Crowley
The following is from Inspired Faith: 365 Days a Year, and is entitled: “No Worries.” Enjoy!
“It is believed by some that worrying is a sin. Do you believe that? How could such a natural and common emotion be a violation of God’s will?
Without attempting to answer that question, all of us can argue that worry is rarely, if ever, helpful—and it is usually detrimental to our quality of life. Worry is bad for our physical health, bad for our mental health, and it doesn’t change anything.
Fundamentally, worry is a lack of faith in God and His protection and provision in our lives. That’s why some call it a sin. It is true that He doesn’t promise to make everything turn out the way we want it to. But He does promise to meet all our needs and to never forsake us.
Will you believe Him? If so, why worry? With God beside us, there are no real worries.”
God, You cloth and feed all the birds outside our windows, so we know You will care for us. Amen.
