Do Not Worry

”Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25 I've been trying to not worry. This is easier said then done. I am worried about getting Caden enrolled in full-time kindergarten (it's only half day in Kansas). My eye started twitching about 3 weeks ago which is a sign of stress. I'm also worried about losing my job due to layoffs. My eye is still twitching. I so badly would like to not worry but it's hard to do. Since Caden is going to kindergarten this year and next (June birthday) I really wanted him to get into an all day program. Especially since he is going all day at daycare it is logical. Sprint is doing three rounds of layoffs. One down 2 to go. I read this prayer and liked it so much I am going to share it. This is from a book "The Cup of Our Life" Prayer for Taking Up Crosses Jesus, happiness and struggle were constantly woven through your life. Why is it that I want the joy, the glory, the good stuff, but I don't want the sorrow, the pain, the struggle? Strengthen me and guide me when crosses such as anxiety, struggle, heartache, loneliness, sadness, time crunches, and frustrations pervade my days. Deepen my desire to be your disciple. Amen
