251/365: Why Are You Worried?

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?  ~ Matthew 6:26-27

Do you remember in detail what you were worrying about 5 years ago?  Perhaps it wasted a chunk of your valuable time and robbed you of being happy.

Jesus taught about worry, because it seems to come natural to us. Some worry more than others, but no one can escape it's presence without focusing on something greater. 

Whatever your worries or fears may be, you can't allow them to rob you of hope and joy.  Let's tackle them head-on today. 

GO DEEPER:  Psalm 23:1-6

Next Steps:

1. Give God complete control of your situation by confessing it and praying.

2. Don't look too far ahead - stay in this day.

3. Think about a past worry and consider how little changed as a result of your worry.
