Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? – Matthew 6:27 (NLT)
It’s really easy to fall into the trap of worry. You worry about your math test on Monday. You worry about whether the guy in chemistry class likes you, you worry about your dog that has been acting sick lately. Life is full of things to worry about and if we’re not careful, worry can consume our lives.
The Bible tells us that worry is not good. It doesn’t help us and if we’re honest, most of the time we worry because we don’t really trust God. We don’t trust that He will help us through the situations that we’re facing. We don’t want to really give God our all and depend on Him to take care of us.
However, if we’re to beat the habit of worry, that’s exactly what we need to do. We need to get rid of all the things we’re worried about and put them over on Jesus. Worry isn’t healthy and worry won’t help us in the long run, just like today’s verse says. Can worry add a single moment to your life? The answer is no. So today, choose to put your trust in God. Choose to trust Him to help you out and to walk with you through the difficulties of life. You can do it, knowing that when you trust God everything will turn out ok.
