I am a worrier. I have anxiety about many things. Where will I be a year from now? Will I be healthy? Will I be happy? Will we work our way out of debt and into our own home? It's been on my mind a lot lately and something that I have been praying hard about it.

Yesterday, I randomly opened to the Book of Luke and staring at me was Luke 12:25:

"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?" 

Wow. I guess He heard my prayers and wanted me to see this. I have been saying it over and over again today and even wrote it on a sticky note and placed it on my desk. While He gave me free will, He also set his path for me and by worrying, I am not adding a single minute let alone hour to my life here until I go home to Him. 

I truly feel a connection that I haven't felt in quite some time. It brings peace to this Christmas week.

I hear ya! Not giving in to my own fears is a daily prayer of mine. I'm always jumping back to Matthew 6:31-35 - it calms me down!
