Five Minute Friday - Worry!

Today's fast Friday challenge word is worry:  Go! 

Do you ever worry?  Or have you worried about worrying?  
I have...then I stopped at this verse.....

"Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.  Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.  Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?" Luke 12:22-26

Frankly, worrying makes you weary.  Worry speaks of fear, of mistrust, and unbelief.  When you're hit square between the brows with life's swirling circumstances and you've done all you know to do, worrying is futile.    

Worry confuses.  Surrender to God reassures.

Worry destroys.  Faith builds trust.

Worry separates.  Prayer tethers us to His strength.

Worry breeds doubt.  Trust births dependence on Him.

Nothing about your life has caught God by surprise. He knew a long time ago you would be in the middle of whatever it is your facing today. He sees all the details...the good, the bad, the ugly....your dark thoughts. He's not weary about how it's going to work out.....So why worry?
