1. The Worry Isn’t Worth It

The clouds of worry that constantly hover over our finances, relationships, and work, can obstruct our view of God’s wonderful capabilities.

Perhaps, if we could go back and tell ourselves that no matter what the circumstance, God’s got it covered, we could have been spared many days and weeks of unnecessary worry.

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” (Luke 12:22-25 NKJV)
