The Scripture:

Mathew 6:25-33

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Our thoughts:

Worry and depression is all to real! We worry about everything. We worry about money, food, clothes, bill, sickness, our families, and much more! I have many times when I worry so bad I don't know what I am going to do. Sometimes I just feel like crying and quite often I do. When ever I get like this I try to remember what Jesus taught. He said not to worry that God will take care of you! I know sometimes it is hard to see this but that is when we have to have true faith. I have found that most of the time when we worry about something that what ever we worry about doesn't happen. The worry is worse than the problem! Worry doesn't help! So the next time you find yourself full of worry just read what Jesus said and pray our prayer for you. Trust God and as hard as it is let it go! Try to work out what problems you can but let God handle all of the rest!

Our prayer for you:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference! Amen!
