DON’T WORRY
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BIBLE THOUGHT:  “LOOK AT THE BIRDS OF THE AIR; THEY DO NOT SOW OR REAP OR STORE AWAY IN BARNS, AND YET YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER FEEDS THEM.  ARE YOU NOT MUCH MORE VALUABLE THAN THEY?  WHO OF YOU BY WORRYING CAN ADD A SINGLE HOUR TO HIS LIFE?”    MATTHEW 6:26-27
WHAT A beautiful day the Lord has blessed us with.  Take time today for a few minutes and breathe in what He has created for you and me.   I am sitting here listening to the birds sing.   What a beautiful sound it is.   I wonder what they are saying.   I will never know, but from the sound of it, they are content and happy.   They are not worried or pressed down about anything.
 
We can learn from the birds.  They fully trust their Creator.   Can we get to that point?   We can!   But it takes perseverance.   We must choose each day to put our lives before Him, trusting in His good and perfect care for us.   When we trust Him with our worry and pain, we can stop trying to control our lives.   When we trust Him with the timing of our lives, we can relax and live under His protection.
 
Slow down and yield your life to Him.   Quit wanting your life to be on your time.   When we allow Him to lead, our lies fall into place.   When we try and control, our lives fall apart.
 
Lord, I try and try to control the things that worry me.  Please help me to release those worries to You, and to know that You are in control.  Give us eyes to see the beauty of Your world, so that we may realize just how big You are.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
