Worry

“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. 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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”

-Matthew 6:25-27

I need to always remember this. I am a constant worrier. Did I do the right homework, should I have run farther today, did I spend enough time on that assignment, if I wait any longer am I going to get it done, am I going to understand this assignment, will my ankle hurt if I throw one more pass…

My head is seriously constant questions and worrying that what I am doing isn’t the best or perfect. If I don’t make my bed this morning does that mean I’m not perfect? I’m not kidding these are serious thoughts that run through me head. Why must I strive for the unattainable? I know I can’t be perfect, so why do I worry? Most the time when I know something can’t be perfect, I want to just give up, which isn’t the right way at all.

I need to stop the worry. That last line from Matthew 6 says it all,

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life.”

I don’t think that could be any more true. What does all that worry give me at the end of the day? A headache. I need to remember this the next time I am feeling overwhelmed.

my mom used to write me little notes that said this
