Do you ever worry about how the future is going to play out? More than likely, there is some area your life that you worry about. Whether or not it is finances, health, or relationships, etc. there is probably some area that you worry about. I know I should do.
Let me direct you to one of my scripture verses about worry. It is found in Matthew 6:25-27:
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?
On my way home after church service, my eyes were caught by the “birds of the air”. Maybe for the first time this verse came to life for me. The birds looked so peaceful just gliding through the air. There looked to be minimal effort on their part.
I believe this how our Heavenly Father wants us to live, with minimal effort. He wants us to relinquish control and turn over control to Him.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Help us to be more like the birds of the air. Help us to soar in our lives like the eagle. Lord it was you that told us that worrying wouldn’t add a single hour to our lives. I pray you sink that message deep into every reader. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen!
