I came across this and I thought it was very interesting and an eye opening.
According to the National Bureau of Standards, a dense fog covering seven city blocks to a depth of 100 feet is composed of something less than one glass of water. That is, all the fog covering seven city blocks 100 feet deep could be, if it were gotten all together, held in a single drinking glass; it would not quite fill it. This can be compared to the things we worry about. If we could see into the future and if we could see our problems in their true light, they wouldn’t blind us to the world — to living itself — but instead could be relegated to their true size and place. And if all the things most people worry about were reduced to their true size, you could probably stick them all into a water glass, too.
Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
What are some of the things that had you worried at the start of this year? Maybe you cannot ever remember half of the stuff and here you are still standing almost mid year.
Worry and prayer cannot live in the same house, you have to choose one. The bible tells us that we should not be anxious about ANYTHING. Not some of the things but ALL THINGS because the God who created us knows better than we do what we need and if He consistently provides for the birds and magnificently clothes the flowers which are here today and gone tomorrow, how about you and I made in His image and likeness?
God sees the whole picture and He has carefully laid out your life if only you will trust Him.
What is that thing that has you worried? What is that thing that is eating away at the peace of God in your life? Pray about it; make an appeal to your heavenly father. In faith begin to thank Him for it and allow His peace to guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
Ye we may not know what tomorrow holds but we do know the one who holds tomorrow and we can trust Him because He assures us that all things work together for our good.
