CHECK OUT A relevent message from Children's Pastor Jessica Flynn on WORRY!
Matthew 6:25-27, 33 (AMP) 25 Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?
26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?
27 And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life? ... 33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
Be sure to listen to the audio message in the Media section.
Worry, doubt, fear and anxiety blocks the flow in our lives.
Philippians 4:6-7 (AMP) 6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ( c definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. 7 And God's peace [shall be yours, that d tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall e garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
(MSG) 6 Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. 7 Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Blessings on your NEW YEAR. God has GREAT THINGS in store in 2017, the YEAR of GOD'S FAVOR!
