Faith for the New Year

I have been reading the teachings of Jesus in Matthew chapter 6 and
have been challenged as I begin this new year.

Jesus equates WORRY with a lack of FAITH. It is evident that when
our faith is small that we don’t know Jesus very well and we worry
about everything. I see how essential it is for me to grow closer
and closer to Him — The closer I get to Him — the better I know
Him and the more I will TRUST HIM.

Jesus tells us that “Your heavenly Father ALREADY knows all your
needs, AND He will give you ALL you need from day to day.” IF HE IS
FIRST IN MY LIFE! v32-33.

SO WHY WORRY? Just get close to Jesus

    Hi Mel,

    I am very thankful I found your website ! I have been enjoying going through it and getting some wonderful reminders. Worry can suck us in and before we know it we are riddled with it. It is constant work towards Christ that battles worry . Simply not taking our eyes off of Him while the boat is sinking. Okay maybe not so simple. ;-)
