Here's a Little Song I wrote....

You might want to sing it note by note don't worry BE HAPPY! :P

This is a pretty old song but its message still rings true today.

Don't worry. Yup, that's right don't worry. This is a subject that the Lord has been dealing with me on for awhile.

You might not believe this, but I used to be the best worrier in the US. I thought worrying about someone equaled caring for someone.

That is, until I read Matthew 6:25-34, which says,

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 important than food, and the body more important 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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Needless to say, this passage hit me pretty hard across the face, because. I realized from reading this passage, that

1. God would take care of whatever I needed. (vs 25-26)

2. worry doesn't help. At all. Ever. (vs 27). If it doesn't do me any good, well then WHY DO IT?

3. I learned that worry is the sin of not trusting God.

4. God already knows when we need something! He's the God who sees (vs 32).

5.If you make God #1 in your life, then He will add on to you whatever is needed! (vs 33-34)

6. Don't worry about what's going to happen tomorrow, next week, or even next year! Focus on the here and now. (vs 34)

Pretty cool, huh? :) There is alot more in this passage that can be devoured, but I'm just getting started here!
