How many time have we all worried about something?  It could be about our job, unemployment, illness (ours or a family member's), and the list goes on and on.  We sometimes forget the other circumstances that God has got us through in the past.

Mathew 6:25-34 Therefor I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.  Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for thy neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? So why do you worry about clothing/  Consider the lilies of the field how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or 'What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" For after all these things the Gentiles seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Isn't it wonderful? All we have to do is seek God and tell him our troubles, and He will take care of us.  So why do we try do it all on our own?

I don't know about you, but sometimes I don't tell God everything that I should.  Sometimes I think my worries on the little things are silly, but sometimes they are big to me.  And you know what if they are big or little to me, God loves us so much that He wants to be in every part of our lives.  By trusting God in all parts of our lives brings us into a closer relationship with Him, which He longs for.

Dear heavenly Father, thank you for always being there for me in the small and the big parts of my life.  Please help me not to worry and give all my troubles to you.  I know that you have my best interest in mind and your ways are better then mine.  Help me to go in the direction that you want me too.  In Jesus name, Amen.
