“Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?”-Matthew 6:27

Worrying. I know I’m guilty of it.  I worry about everything.  But it seems that everyone has something to worry about. It may be school-related or work-related; it may be about paying the bills, taking care of our families, or even how other people perceive us.  In today’s society, we are always on the go, and let’s face it, most of us are worrying about something.

Sometimes we are so worried and wrapped up in our own lives that we forget God is here to help us.  He loves us so much and because of his great love, he will always be there for us.  Like any father, he will provide for his children.  However, we have to learn to put our lives in his hands and trust him, no matter how hard that can be.  We have to remember that God has a plan for all of us. 

Today’s Gospel tells us that there’s no reason for us to worry.  If we put our lives in God’s hands and do our best to live out the Gospel and follow Jesus’ example, everything that we could ever need will be taken of. 

I came across a quote this week that I believe perfectly sums up today’s Gospel.  It reads:

My child, you worry too much.
I’ve got this, remember?
Love, God
