Yesterday's word was anxiety; today's is worry. These two, for me, are incredibly similar. I think the fact that they are both on the list (and so high on the list) indicate exactly how often we let negative thoughts control our minds.
When looking through my Bible to find a verse for both yesterday and today...I found multiple verses that were applicable. Multiple verses that made me think "Really, ALL of these clear sayings that show I shouldn't worry, that it's not my place to try and take care of these things, and I still can't just trust the deity I claim to believe will give me everlasting life after death in heave?"
Seriously, sometimes I am just a big 'ole dummy. If I really do believe the foundations of Christianity- that God created this world, then sent Jesus Christ to earth to sacrifice Himself and save us all- if I really believe that He is capable of those huge, life-altering things...why can I not trust that He will take care of mundane things like what job I get or when I pay my bills?
2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
No matter what life throws at me, no matter how overwhelming it may be...He is with. There is no need to worry, because He is with me. He can and will take care of me. Ultimately, any worry I have is because of my lack of faith.
