When worries filled my days—about the future, about my family, my faith—God popped some verses into my inbox.
Matthew 6:34: “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
Looking more at Matthew 6, I’m reminded of the uselessness of worrying about things over which I have no control.
2 Corinthians 9:8: “And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”
1 Peter 5:7: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
And the verse which I often use in my prayers when I wrestle with the thoughts in my head.
Ezekiel 36:26: “And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.”
Ephesians 3:17-19: “Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
Lord, wrap me in the immenseness of your love.
