Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, 
for tomorrow will worry about its own things. 
Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6:34 NKJV

or from The Message

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, 
and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. 
God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up 
when the time comes
I don’t know about you, but I love this verse.  Especially when I get caught up in worrying…about things I cannot control.
He is present.  ALWAYS.  
He is with me.  ALWAYS.
He is here.  He is there.  He is where I need him to be, when I need him to be there.  

So why do I worry?  Why do I stress about things that are out of my control?

It is kind of like not having a anchor.  

Kind of like driftwood floating about, washing up on shore.
And getting tangled in vegetation of life.
But when I totally give my worry to Him…when I totally let go of the things that trouble me…when I remember that HE can handle.  He can take care of things.  When I remember HE will 
deal with whatever hard things come up 
when the time comes

then I can let go.  I can open my hands…release the worry and see things differently.

These flowers were right there…right by the driftwood.  We can see the wood caught in the weeds or we can see the flowers. 

When I wrote this post earlier this week, several people remarked in the comments that they give their burdens to the Lord, then pick them up again.  We seem to have trouble LEAVING them at his feet.  We have trouble leaving our burdens with him.

You know, he doesn’t need our help driving.  He really doesn’t. He just needs us to trust him.  And when we do…he can do AMAZING things.

Lord, today, please give me the courage to TRUST you completely…with everything.

Do you have trouble TRUSTING HIM completely?  
Or trouble leaving your burdens at His feet?  
What do you do to overcome the problem?

I discovered this story after preparing this post.  Please check it out and if nothing else, please pray for this family.
