Tomorrow Will Worry About Itself

I’m not like the typical worrier, but that’s not to say I don’t worry. Most worriers worry about their jobs, their money, their family, their homes, the stuff they need to get done, etc. The important stuff I don’t worry about at all. I have this overbearing optimism about the BIG things in life, even if they seem bleak, I feel like they’ll always work out the way they are supposed to. People might expect this sort of outlook from someone who has always had everything they ever needed and wanted and has always had everything go in their favor, but this is definitely not the case for me. I have certainly had plenty storms in my life but every storm passes.

Have you ever noticed how perfectly blue the sky is after a storm? What about the plants? Have you noticed how they instantly perk up after a fierce storm? I feel like this is exactly why I am still so optimistic even though I have had to weather many nasty storms throughout my life. Sometimes there are blessings in picking up the pieces and lessons to be learned.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34

Like I said, I struggle with worry, too! I worry about really insignificant things. Mostly anything unknown. If I have an event coming up somewhere I’ve never been before I worry about getting there, getting lost, not being able to find a parking spot, being late, getting caught in traffic, etc. Pretty petty stuff to worry about right? I constantly have to remind myself of the Bible verse quoted above. Not to mention most of the time things end up working out perfectly and I wonder why I even bothered to worry about it at all!

Whether or not you’re a worry-wort, we all have our share of worries. What do you worry about?

    Like you, I worry about the little things. Like yesterday, when I digitally had to turn in a portfolio for one of my classes. They make it so you can only submit something once, and I spent like 15 minutes worrying if I had uploaded the right version (there’s no way to check)… haha!

    Like you, I always have faith that the big things will work out the way they are supposed to. I have a major “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” attitude. Even the negative stuff has a way of showing you you’re capable of more than you originally thought =)

    Love the new name! And I really like the layout, too ^^!

    there’s another spectacular verse and it says something like “Who has ever added another hour to their life by worrying?” (Matt6:27 NIV84). I think that because you have God in your life you aren’t apt to worry about big things because you know that they’ll be taken care of, so it’s “easier” to worry about small things.

    A song that I love by Ron Sexsmith that’s a secular song is called All in Good Time (The Bad Times Will Be Gone). It’s so TRUE.
