A few days ago, I was eating lunch near a window to enjoy the sun because it was too cold to actually sit outside. Shortly after sitting I noticed a bird that was clearly looking for something to eat, seconds later I notice another bird, then another. While I observed in those moments, a passage that I’d heard many times before as a little girl came to me. Though I couldn’t remember the passage word for word but I knew the jest of it had something to do with why worry about anything, birds don’t worry, they just find what they need and are on their way”. Close enough!! 😉
The passage I was thinking about was a scripture from the Christian Bible & my mother would be so proud of me….
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear… 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?……33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
If the birds don’t worry, because God takes care of them, why would I worry when I KNOW God takes care of me?! Such a fair question & it makes no sense that I worry anyhow (complete insanity) aaaannnndddd clearly an option that I’m choosing. Whatever happens, worrying does not stop or even delay it! To the contrary worrying just makes the process last Much longer and more times than not (as we All know) it never looks as terrible as it looked in our mind, as we spent Hours, days and months lost in the abyss of worry.
This is a conversation I am having with myself but decided to type it out so now having it with you 😉 Time after time after time things work themselves out even Better than what I expected. So I have to ask myself Why Worry? No, seriously! WHY?!
Worry can drive you crazy, is bad for your health and serves no purpose. Two of my favorite quotes contradict the very validity of worrying.
One “And we know that All things work together for good….” (Romans 8:28)
Two “Everything that has happen, had to happen and could not have happen Any other way” (Morpheus The Matrix Reloaded)
Worry is an option…. Choose not to…. Fafimihan
