Can any of you add a single hour to your life by worrying?1 Good luck trying. Usually the only thing you add is grey hair and ulcers.
So don’t ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.2 Seriously, you can’t even wrap your head around everything that’s gonna happen in a couple minutes. You’re already rushing and the today day hasn’t even effectually started yet. So why are you trying to deal with tomorrow too?
Cut it out and turn all your anxiety [issues, concerns, fears, worries] over to God because he cares for you.3 In other words, just talk to the Man. Tell him everything on your mind.4 EVERYTHING. Ahem…I repeat…EVERYTHING. Cause if you’re gonna bother praying, what’s the point in lying and trying to hide stuff. It’s counterproductive. And once you finish talking to Him about it, stop running around telling everybody else your sob stor(ies). Because if you tell five people, four of them will have you more worried than when you started. So instead of hoping that telling someone else will guilt them into helping you out, or just having mouth run-on, trust in Him and he will act and help you.5
Just let Him do what he does. And he will. Don’t worry.
