Matthew 6:34 (ESV)
Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
It is so easy to fall into the trap of worry. I wake up many nights worried about the next day and what I needed to do. Concerned that I would forget something that needed to be done. I have lost a lot of sleep because I was so worried that I’d forget something the next day.
Worry is a bad thing. It keeps you from sometimes sleeping, eating, or even just enjoying life. That’s why the Bible tells us not to worry about tomorrow. Because if we’re using up all our energy worrying about the next day, we’re not enjoying today. God doesn’t want us going through life bogged down with worry and cares. Instead, He wants us to trust Him, that He will take care of things.
So today, if you have a bad habit of worrying about things, decide to make a change for good. Decide to stop worrying about things that may or may not happen and enjoy the things God has provided for you today. As you break the habit of worry, you’ll find that you’ll begin enjoying life more each day!
Dear Lord, help us to not worry about the things in life but to fully trust You in all things. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
