How To Handle Worry And Encourage My Heart Link Up

I seem to do a lot better posting when I have a series to focus on.  So with that in mind I'll be spending the next few days talking about worry.

Worry is so unnecessary, and yet, aren't we all guilty of it? God doesn't want us to worry, so He's promised to take care of our needs.

Let that sink in.  Your heavenly father, creator of the whole universe and Savior of your soul, has promised to take care of your needs so you don't have to worry.

God wants us to let go o our worry so that we can serve Him without inhibition.  He wants us to seek His Kingdom first, and then he'll take care of the details.

What a blessing.  And yet it's not truly a blessing unless we lay down the burden that is worry.

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 6:25-34
