Matthew 6:34; "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof".
Each day has its own cares and grievance but it also has its own strength. We need to live each day as it comes to us. Let tomorrow take care of its self.
Matthew 6:27; "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature"?
Not one of us can add a day, month, or year to our life by worrying about what tomorrow will bring. Did your realize worry is the absence of faith. Instead of worrying we need to cast all our cares upon the Lord because He cares about us. I Peter 5:7; "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you". Isn't it better to let the Lord take care of all our cares?
This doesn't mean we are not to plan ahead but what it means is not to worry about it.
When casting our cares upon the Lord when we lay down to sleep we will have a restful sleep. Proverbs 3:24; "When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet". It is so nice to lie down and have a restful sleep instead of tossing and turning.
Remember worry is the absence of faith, it is better to keep the faith. Keep our faith and turn our worries and cares over to the Lord.
Here is a poem I received and I think you will enjoy it.
Why Worry About Tomorrow?
Why worry about tomorrow
And the rising of the sun,
Of anguish over past mistakes
That cannot be undone?
Why waste life's precious moments
On things that bruise the heart
When today is ours to fashion
Into a work of art?
Today comes but once, my friend,
It never can return--
So use it wisely while you can,
There's a lesson you may learn.
Let history record the past
And tomorrow come what may.
Be content to do your best
With what you have today!
Poet: Clay Harrison
Remember to keep your faith, give your cares to the Lord, and enjoy the time the Lord has given us.
May you always know the love, joy, and peace of the Lord!
