Be Anxious for Nothing

We are asked to meditate on God’s word, and setting aside time to sit and think is something I’ve been trying to do more often as my life becomes more busy.  If you also do not desire for being busy to become more important than spending time with God while considering His word, then perhaps the thoughts that follow can inspire your own meditation. 🙂
Christ tells us to be anxious for nothing.  What can worrying add to one’s life but trouble?  When we have anxieties, we should give them to the One whom is able to bear them.  I’ve heard it said that when a person relies on his or her individual strength, if that person succeeds, it will lead to pride, and if that person fails, it will lead to self-condemnation.  If one relies on God’s strength, however, He always has a measure of grace ready at hand.  Without this grace we would lead withered lives.
Quotes to consider –
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength. – Charles Spurgeon

“Most of us go through life praying a little, planning a little, jockeying for position, hoping but never being quite certain of anything, and always secretly afraid that we will miss the way… There is a better way. It is to repudiate our own wisdom and take instead the infinite wisdom of God.” – A.W. Tozer

“Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.” — J.R.R. Tolkien
