Don't Worry

When we focus on a problem, it grows, multiplies, overwhelms and robs us of joy and peace. But when we focus on the Lord - on His word, love, grace, power, glory, and might - our problems become so small we can hardly see them.

Whatever has happened this week that has caused your focus to shift. It's time to refocus our attention to the only One who can calm the storms of our lives.

Lord, teach us to bring all things to You. When worry threatens to overwhelm, help us to commit our problems into Your hands and rest in the knowledge that You are sovereign and mighty. May the focus of our hearts and our lives upon You this day. In Jesus name, Amen!
