Do Not Worry

Worry is something that we all face on a daily basis.  Whether you are worried about a big exam coming up, or that important meeting that you have to attend, we all feel worry.  I am what you would call a “worry wart”.  When I have speak in front of an unfamiliar crowd, or rush to finish a big project, I always seem to have something to worry about.

I could never figure out a way to stop my worrying, I’ve tried all of the relaxation techniques, but nothing seemed to work, until I went to the bible.  Luke 12:22-34 speaks on worrying exclusively.  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.  For life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.”

The remainder of the passage goes on to speak about how the ravens neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet god feeds them.  Consider the lilies, they neither toil nor spin, and yet look at how they grow.

To me this passage shows us that, we are all safe in god’s hands.  In other words, we have nothing to worry about, god will always be there to help us through whatever situation comes before us.  Do not worry about the future, for if you live life in the present, the future will be bright and welcoming.  If we only think about the worst case scenario, we will never be able to enjoy all the good things that life has to offer us.   Live believing that god will take care of you when you are in need and life will become a blessing, not a burden.

  1. Great blog! Everyone needs encougagement about worrying. We all worry too much. We all need to relax and just enjoy the ride that God provides us. God will ultimately get us through all our wilderness experiences. “Life is to mysterious to take it serious.”
    THANKS LUKE!

  2. easier said than done.
    I have spent many nights awake, and some on my knees because of worry.
    but i have learned that God is there for us,
    and worrying only causes fatique!
    Trusting God is the hardest and easiest thing…
    it is a matter of letting go…..
    God has put a great challenge before me, so God must also plan to give the resources!
    thanks Luke……Carol
