The Time To Not Worry...Is Now!

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34

We like to worry about a great many things and we like to know the timing of things too. To an alien observer it might even seem like we listen to weather reports so that we can learn when to worry the most and how to best risk our lives with that quick dash to the store as the tornado warning sounds. Humans have quite the capacity to both worry and to cause themselves more reason to worry. Yet, in His great sermon, Jesus our Lord told us to not worry about today by way of what we should eat, drink or wear, and not to worry about tomorrow.

So, with today and tomorrow off the worry table, I guess the time to not worry is now.

All righty then, enough about that subject!

Indeed, when Jesus made His commands on that subject, He fully expected us to walk away from worry and right into trusting Him completely. And so we should do, and oh boy do I have problems with giving up worry and living in complete faith. The flesh is such a frightened, cringing and detestable little creature, and it does love to paralyze me with worry. Jesus our Lord says to step forth in faith: when will we answer Him, "Yes, Lord!" Yes indeed, the time to not worry is now!

Have faith! The love of our Lord does not fade or grow dim in this present darkness.
