Why Worry?

So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life. ~Matthew 6:31-33~

My Child,

>Why is trust so hard for you? Why do you worry about menus and calories and what the scale will say when you step on it? Why do you fret about styles and fashions and pulling together just the right wardrobe?

Life is so much more than food; your body is so much more than the clothes you put on it. Look at the birds. They have never made a grocery list or counted a calorie, yet they get fed. Look at a field of flowers. Do you think they worry about what’s in style or what color goes with what? If I take care of birds and flowers, can’t you believe I’ll take care of you? Put me first, and I will.
