“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? Matthew 6:27
Jesus asks a great question here, can worrying add any time back to your life? When we think about how much time we spend worrying, wouldn’t you like to get that time back? Did worrying about the situation make any difference? Now I know it’s easier to say not worry then actually doing it. Its human nature for us to worry , but that’s why Jesus gave us a solution.
As we read in past days,Jesus said to Let him carry our burdens and he’ll give us rest. Also we learned about “Casting our Care and Worries to God”. When we learn to give up control over things we can’t control, it releases the peace of God within us.
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34
Jesus goes on to tell us , when we waste all our time and energy worrying on things, we miss out on the present day. Sooner or later we all realize that everyday is a gift from God. We don’t know how much time we have or blessings we will receive. But we need to make sure we don’t squander all the time that we are here.
Also when we continually keep focusing on our past and future problems, we neglect the problems that are happening right now. What can we learn from this? Focus on every day as its own, don’t keep living in the past and future. I heard it say “Its called the Present because everyday is a gift from God”
This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Begin each day with this verse, rejoice and be glad you are alive and today is filled with unlimited potential. Don’t worry about tomorrow because today is a gift from God in Jesus Name Amen
