Worry not.

You know, I think that what the Bible says is true. And we really should believe it. How often do we forget these simple instructions Jesus gives us. Especially the ones that are for our own good. See I'm even coming at this from a selfish point of view, and taking Jesus' words seriously still turns out being the only right way.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil. 4:4-7




      …have been my downfall as of late. About life, about friendships, about the future. You know how it goes. But, why, why, why should I stress about these things when I am in (or have the choice to be) in a daily constant relationship with the God of the universe!? Seriously, Jami? He not only knows my fears, but he also knows what is best for me. Now that is a God worth trusting. 
Starting here, I'm going to attempt to not get so caught up in my own little world and shallow viewpoint and start giving my cares and burdens and worries to him, trusting he is in control. 
It's really rather freeing. And what more could I ask for, than freedom!
