Don’t Worry, Be Happy

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life… do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matt. 6:25-34).

Reading those verses made me literally sigh with relief. Peace suddenly rushed over me and just grabbed and pulled away all the racing thoughts and questions. I’m learning to live in the moment. I love to dream and plan my future – so I think days, months, & years into what I want to be doing. I want to be able to live in the moment though. To be able to BE with God. This verse was straight from the Father’s heart to me today. I think He laughs at me a lot. Much of the time because I get an idea into my head and I just want to go full speed ahead. He’s probably just smiling at me as I run around and get my notes out and tell Him what the plan is for our next adventure.

This verse is so not me – but it is becoming me. The thought of only having to think of one moment at a time, not worrying about anything ahead, settles everything inside of me. It’s like the rushing wind and waves of thoughts are suddenly stilled with these words. I love the way Jesus speaks to me. He knows exactly what I need to hear and the way I need to hear it. He’s so gentle. He gave me the verse in Psalm 46, “Be still and know that I am God.” He spoke it in the perfect moment and the perfect way. The same thing spoken by different people or in different tones is received so differently. Jesus knew the perfect timing and the perfect way for me to hear this message. He knows how to handle my heart in His hands.

So, don’t worry about tomorrow. Take it moment by moment. It will be a spectacular journey.
