Today let's try not to worry. God says that the minds of the unbelievers are dominated by worry. Worrying about what to eat. Worrying about what to wear. Worrying about tomorrow, next week, even next year. But God wants us to remember that we are living for eternity, we don't need to make ourselves crazy worrying about temporary things. He says that if we focus on Him and His Kingdom, He will make sure we have all we need. Jesus even tells us to pray for the things we need, because God is a Father who loves to give good gifts.

So today lets take a deep breath together, and give all of our worries to God. Lets focus on the eternal and make it a point to love well today. Lets love God and love others, with the love we first received from Him. When you start to feel worry creep back in, then go stand outside for a minute, and let yourself adore creation. The trees. The flowers. The ocean. The mountains. Look at the incredible detail in all of it. If He can do that awesome of a job with something small, like a flower, think of what a beautiful job He can do with everything you are worried about. Trust Him. It's going to be okay.

Matthew 6

New Living Translation (NLT)
31: “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God[d] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need."
