Matt 6:25, 33-34 (NIV)
“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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes?… But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
It’s obeying Him in the day to day that brings us to the ever after.
I made that up.. Yeah I know.. cheesy… sorry.
Funny how there’s some lessons you just keep having to learn. This is one of my favourites, ok, so that was sarcasm. I was recently reminded that I fret too much about long term matters. What I’m going to be doing in 1 year… 2 years… 3 years (you get the picture). When I already know that continuing to seek and obey Him each day will lead me to where I’m going.
Why is it I allow myself to be overwhelmed by circumstances beyond my control? Why do I allow myself to dwell on things undone, incomplete and unresolved when really all I need to do is put my proverbial nose to the grindstone and do, complete, resolve and let Him take care of the things I can’t affect.
I like the sound of that!
Now.. if only I can pull it off…
