Why Worry?

God provided manna
When His people needed food,
And from a rock their thirst was met
When their complaints ensued.

And when His twelve disciples
Encountered a fierce storm,
He simply spoke and all was still,
Their world was back to norm.

And when a crowd was hungry
He used one little lunch,
And multitudes were fed that day
With more than they could munch.

So why do I get fearful?
Why worry, fret and stew?
Why stumble as if all alone,
He's there to see me through!

For nothing takes Him by surprise,
Nothing too hard, too bad,
In all of it He can bring good
Though now it makes me sad.

So though I falter through each day
The end not yet in sight,
With every sunrise comes new strength
By faith and not by might.


"Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life." Philippians 4:6-7 (The Message)

I enjoyed this! My problem is, I keep telling the Lord, 'Yeah! But, You're Up THERE: floatin' on a CLOUD! Naturally, You're goin' to see things a lot DIFFERENTLY! It's no FAIR!" He just looks gazes down on me, with a patient sigh. God Bless.

In Hebrews 4:14-16, it tells us that Jesus was tempted IN EVERY RESPECT as we are, I believe that also means He was tempted to worry. So He knows what we go through, He has lived it himself. That comforts me. (I especially love the Amplified translation of these verses.)

Well done! Good reminder that God is always with us.
