Do Not Be Anxious

Luke 12 verse 22-31 (ESV)

22 And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?[a] 26 If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,[b] yet I tell you,even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29 And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. 30 For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 Instead, seek his[c] kingdom, and these things will be added to you.

I know this is hard for me (I am a worrier) instead I need to be a warrior for God and his word. God has taken care of me and my family time and time again. So I shouldn't worry about the things in life because God has already said I am valuable to him. Think about that God who created everything, and I am actually worth something to him. Therefore he will provide for me what I need to live. As being human I still struggle with not worrying and being anxious but I am getting better about that through praying and reading his word. His strength definitely gets me through everything. God bless us and I pray that we can all be a light to this world and each other. With his strength we can make it through anything.
