Worry???? Why do we do it?

I got this email today and I just had to share the words it had in it with all of you. As I struggled this week, this just made it all clear. We need not worry.

What to Do with Worries Tuesday, December 16, 2008 “God did not keep back his own Son, but he gave him for us. If God did this, won’t he freely give us everything else?”Romans 8:32 CEV

What do we do with…worries? Take your anxieties to the cross—literally. Next time you’re worried about your health or house or finances or flights, take a mental trip up the hill. Spend a few moments looking again at the pieces of passion.
Run your thumb over the tip of the spear. Balance a spike in the palm of your hand. Read the wooden sign written in your own language. And as you do, touch the velvet dirt, moist with the blood of God.
Blood he bled for you.
The spear he took for you.
The nails he felt for you.
The sign he left for you.
He did all this for you. Knowing this, knowing all he did for you there, don’t you think he’ll look out for you here?
