Why Worry When We Can Trust?

Why worry?

I went on my usual 4km run at our local park some days ago.
I saw a couple faithful feeding the ducks by the pond with a loaf of bread.
I saw pigeons by the side feasting on some pieces of bread.
I saw a workman trimming the trees.
I saw Spring flowers.
I saw a man walking his dog.
I saw a wriggling worm

Then this scripture resonated inside of me, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” – Matthew 6:26-27

Ducks and pigeons
Trees and flowers
Dogs and worms
Who tends and feeds them?

If God in His wisdom and providence sends helpers to tend to these lower beings, how much more He will do us who are made in His image? How much more will He provide, protect and defend those whom He died for? So much more exceedingly abundantly above what we can ask or imagine.

Hence, I ask why worry?
Why do we worry a lot despite the fact that we know worry changes little?
Why worry when we can trust in the unfailing reliable hands of the Almighty God?
It is time to worry less and trust more
It is time to stop worrying.

W – Worrying is Worthless #AtoZ 2018


Worrying is worthless 
It’s wasteful and unwarranted 
Like a rocking chair 
It gives one a day job
That never gets one anywhere,
Yet, wears one down
It robs today’s peace,
It steals tomorrow’s hope,
Stress, despair, anxiety 
Its daily companions
It’s not worth the effort nor the time 

Worrying is worthless

Reflections From Life #3

I have discovered that worrying increases my fears, makes my hopelessness and helplessness larger than life. But, it doesn’t take me anywhere it rather adds to my problems. So instead I am learning to say, “Lord, what’s the way forward?”. I am learning to tell myself, “What has happened has happened. Where do I go from here?”.
