Dont’ worry, be happy

Matthew 6:25 (NIV) “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, what you will drink; about your body, what you will wear. Is life not more important that food, and the body more important than clothes?”

Worrying.  That’s something I’m good at!  Small things like wondering if I have matching socks on today and big things like can I afford this months bills?  Worrying seems to come natural to me.  I can do it with out thinking about it.  But it is dangerous to worry all the time.  It also sends the message that you don’t trust God to take care of you, that you don’t think He knows what’s best for you.  Letting go is one of the hardest things for me.  I have a very scientific mind, it’s hard for me to trust in something I can’t see or touch.  But my experiences in life have shown me that He is worth trusting.

I’m not saying that we simply lay back and say “God will take care of everything.”  There is work on our end that needs to be done.   We do need to work, hard at times, to sustain ourselves. We also need to trust that sometimes when ends don’t meet, or things are very stretched, God can and will take care of us.  Finding that balance between work and faith is something I struggle with constantly.

How do you find your balance?
