Don’t Worry, Be Happy
We have just returned from helping our daughter and son-in-law move to Texarkana AR. I’ve got to admit that as a parent and grandparent, I’m a little worried about them living over 3700 km away. I think most parents worry about their children and choices they make.
What is it that worries you? Some worry about making monthly mortgage payments, some worry about work, while others are anxious about big decisions that must be made. With all of the concerns of life, it’s hard to live the worry free life that Jesus wants us to.
But Jesus points out that worry isn’t helpful because it changes nothing. It doesn’t add a single minute to your day or solve a single problem. Jesus reminds us that worrying isn’t necessary because we have a heavenly Father who He loves us and who knows our every need in every situation. When we come to trust Him with every area of our lives we can let go of the worries and rest in the assurance that God is good and has everything under control.
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life…” Matt. 6:25
