What a vicious merry-go-round is worry and anxiety. Worry and anxiety keeps you weighed down and with that gnawing sick feeling in the pit of your stomach.  What good does worry and anxiety do? The answer:  Absolutely nothing.  There is zero benefits associated with worry and anxiety.  Just the opposite is true in reality.  Worry and anxiety has negative physical, spiritual, relational and emotional repercussions.  With each question, with each concern your palms sweat, a headache arrives, you become nauseated, people don’t want to be around you, and God “seems” to be absent … Don’t worry about today because Christ is your source for ALL your needs.  Jesus commands us:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life,

what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear.

Is not life more important than food, and the body

more important than clothes?”

~ Matthew 6:25 ~

When we begin to worry and anxiety rises it’s a result of our losing focus.  When we are worrying, we are not focused on God. It is impossible to do both … worry and focus on God, it cannot be done.  Worrying about something places us square in the world and prevents us from entering into the presence of God.  When life’s circumstances come crashing in we need to turn our whole self toward God and remember that:

God is our ultimate provider for every need.

He is Yahweh Yireh … The Lord Will Provide

Every need … your health, emotions, finances, every care … is met in Christ Jesus!
