Stop Worrying! - God's in Control

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
As a society, we typically worry everyday - whether it's about something minuscule or on a grand scale. But what we tend to forget is the act of worrying is not from God. Worrying is just another scheme from the devil to get you off of your course and distract you from your Purpose. So while you may be, for example, too busy worrying about what other people might think about you, you could be using that same time that you are worrying to focus on building your life and following your Purpose. What other people think about you does absolutely nothing for you. God has already naturally, instilled in you the calling that he already has for you in your life if you just listen and follow Him and not be distracted by the devil's, worldly guiles and tricks.

Be also at peace with your finances. If you are worried about food and shelter, remember that just as God has provided food and shelter to animals, what makes you think that He cannot provide for you?
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:25-26
Remember - God is always in control, even when our lives feel out of control. God already knows the desires of your heart and the plans for your life - so why worry? Ignore the distractions and instead take it to Him in prayer so that you can get back to your Purpose.
