do not worry about tomorrow



This verse is on repeat in my head this morning- this time the kids version "do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself..."  We don't even have that CD for the car, but I can hear it still.

There's no irony to the fact that I'm in a weekly Bible Study this year around the book Calm My Anxious Heart: A Woman's Guide to Finding Contentment.

Today, the government shutdown begins.  Benjamin is a government employee so that means no work and no pay for him until an agreement is made.  Today his Mom also goes into brain surgery again, this time with a more risky procedure.

I'm thankful for this verse and the peace God is providing me right now.  I know it'll be a discipline to shut out Satan's voice when he wants me to worry about tomorrow.  I pray that I won't do it, and that when I do it'll be there for a moment then I'll cling to the truth of God's sovereignty and plan and trust in Him.

How do you battle uncertainty and anxiety?

Philippians 4:6-7  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
