Don’t worry (be happy:)
Last night I was up worrying. Well…worrying may not be the right word…but I guess it really boils down to that. I KNEW it was dumb. I knew to take my thoughts captive. I knew to have faith. But still….last night I was up worrying.
I had some medical tests yesterday and I simply could NOT settle. Considering that since day one of hearing the “C word” I’ve had NO worry…this came as a surprise to me.
Is God not the same today as yesterday? What changed? Absolutely NOTHING. He never changes. We..well, we can be tossed to and fro.
I went to Matthew 6:25 early this morning. Gosh…read that one over and over in the Passion translation. Here’s a few of the words:
NEVER be worried. Could worry add anything to your life? Forsake your worries…for that is what UNbelivers chase after (it always comes back to BELIEF, doesn’t it!?)
FORSAKE: to quit or leave entirely; to abandon. To give up or renounce.
Those are some strong and powerful words. God is not mamby pamby when it comes to talking about worry.
And then…in verse 33, He gives us the SOLUTION:
“So above all, CONSTANTLY seek God’s Kingdom…REFUSE to worry about tomorrow…DEAL with things one day at a time.”
Shew. He ain’t playing around. And so…today…I will be hanging out here, focusing on the kingdom and HIS truth over any and all thoughts and imagination bubbles that try to float right into my mind.
Love y’all so much.
