Matthew 6:25-27, 6:33-34

I was ravaging my closet one night, stressed, looking for what I was going to wear the next day. My sister laughed at how I must’ve looked. “Tomorrow you’ll figure out what to wear. You know that one bible verse.. about not worrying about what to wear..?” She had this bible verse in mind:

 “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? 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? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

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.

True enough, we always seem to figure it out, don’t we? It seems like the older we get, the more worries added to our plates. But worrying can many times just be futile. It is better to live day to day, in the present, with goals in mind rather than worries. I used to feel as though I was carrying a heavy weight made up of worries and fears about the future.  I’m learning more and more to put my whole trust in God. I will try my best, God, please guide me.
