A Little Monday Inspiration

Taken from JESUS CALLING by Sarah Young:

The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry.  You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust Me no matter what. 

I am a chronic worrier.  I worry about an impending snow storm.  I worry about my husband and kids while they are away from home.  I worry about my parents. I worry about my long list of To-Do's. I worry about the future for our children.  I worry about the stock market (our income depends on it).  I worry about our safety.  I could go on and on and on with my list of worries.  This devotion from JESUS CALLING spoke to me and was a reminder that I needed to hear.

Then in this same time frame, I came across another quote related to worry.

Worry is pulling tomorrow's clouds over today's sunshine. 
Shirley Wood

What a perfect visual reminder of how worry can affect your attitude and how the rest of your day plays out.

I need to remember one of my favorite sayings, "Let go and let God!" and live it!  Hey, wasn't that my 2013 Resolution????  Ugh...need to keep working on that!

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:34
