Do not worry but rest in Jesus' love

Hope. I am so amazed at how Jesus fills me with hope. Whenever I am afraid, or confused or even filled with joy I know that my life is not my own. I do not have to live for myself. This world is not about me. This takes so much stress and weight off my shoulders. My only goal in life is to live for Jesus. So whatever He calls me to do whether it is working in Africa or working at home or being a stay-at-home mom, I know that is God's plan for my life. I also know that God will reveal His perfect will to me. So sometimes when I start worrying because time is ticking and I don't know all the details, I know that God is in control. I love this! I love that I don't have to worry about my life.
Matthew 6:25-34
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 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? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

We have hope that Jesus will lead us and guide us. So why worry? Jesus is walking with us and guiding us. He is always guarding us and will always protect us. So even if we don't have all the answers, we can be content knowing Jesus does. Isn't that amazing? That fills me with comfort. Jesus loves us and wants our best.
God bless!
