Awake Too Early

I confess.  I have been awake since 4:00 a.m. today.  I went to sleep easily and slept well until then.  However, at that time I let worry creep in.  I know better.  Does that happen to any of you?  I laid there and kept telling myself that all the worries flitting through my mind could be handled during the day, yet, I kept worrying.

So, this post is really for me.  If you are a worrier as well, though, this might be for you also.  It is from Matthew 6:25-27.

25 "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? 26Look 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? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifeb?

I LOVE that verse! I printed it out and put it up on my bulletin board at work. Whenever I get anxious, I try to tell myself, "The birds of the air, remember?" ;-)

One of my favorites, also -- but at times of extreme stress and worry, it doesn't seem to help much, as the worries crowd out God's voice. Is that awful, or what? I really need to work on that!

Kate, I think we all need to work on that. I KNOW that I do!

AKM, good idea to have it right where you look at it often!
