It can consume us if we allow it to…worry. What does it do for us? There is a famous quote that is attributed to many different individuals…I believe it is famous for what it says not because of who said it:
“Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere”
We have a choice; we can sit and worry and stew about things or we can make use of the time we have by meeting with God about these things and trust in Him to guide us and lead us. Do not worry, seek the Lord and you will find peace. Amen.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?”
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
