“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? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” (Matthew 6: 25-27) NKJV.
Jesus, you said that worry is non-productive. It doesn’t remedy anything. Yet, it is such a human thing to do. It is so natural to stress out and obsess over what to do. Please deliver me from this temptation.
Be with the people of Sendai, and other like tragedies. Show me how I can be of help. Seeing disastrous images on television reminds me that we live on a broken planet. Each day brings fresh tragedies and heartaches that need to be responded to. I want to help.
I long for this planet and all who live on it to be safe, physically and spiritually. Please send your Son Jesus to renew our hearts with the hope of your soon Coming.
In Jesus’ name. Amen!
