Earlier in the week, in Don’t Forget The Blessings, I talked about how we can often get caught up in life and all its problems and so forget about the many blessings we receive each day. So it’s no great surprise that after writing that blog post, the following quote came into my mind:
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength ~ Corrie ten Boom
 It’s true isn’t it, we can often focus so much on how we’re going to cope and deal with our problems tomorrow, that we forget to live today!
Don’t keep your worries to yourself, take them all to God and leave the with Him, because He can lighten your load and help you live for today knowing that God will help you cope with tomorrow.

‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

‘And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
