Thought to share: The cure for worry is to look at ME. Inspect MY faithfulness. Dig into MY goodness. Explore the vastness of MY great power and authority. Review MY ability to do the impossible. Examine MY deep love for you. As you inspect MY character, you’ll find worry dissipates like the dew on a bright sunny day.

Matthew 6:25-34 (MSG) “If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

 “Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

 “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Thought to share: your actions do not affect MY feelings. Regardless of what you do, say or think – MY love for you does not change. MY love is not based on your track record or performance. MY love is not contingent upon your behavior. MY love for you is based upon MY character. I AM love. I AM faithful. I never change. I will always love you perfectly, flawlessly, completely. Trust in and rest and be secure in this Truth.

Romans 5:8 (NLT) But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
1John 4:16 (NLT) We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in His love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

Thought to share: You are like a sponge. You have a tendency to absorb your environment and soak up the atmosphere. To prevent negative osmosis and flush out toxicity, soak in MY Presence. Come and be with ME. Disconnect from everything and just be with ME. Push aside all thoughts except ME. Fill your mind with thoughts of ME – meditate on MY love and goodness. Dwell on MY character. Soak in ME. Let ME fill you up completely, flushing out negativity, stress, anxiety and fear.

James 4:8 (NLT) Come close to God, and God will come close to you.
Psalm 62:5 (NLT) Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him.
