New Living Translation (NLT)
27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
It Rained Today
The skies turned dark today
Full of rain the clouds were gray
And distant thunder was sure to remind
The lightening would not be far behind
All the while the wind ripped and roared
Soon the rain would begin to pour
Our lives play out as much the same
Troubles come and call our name
And we should do our very best
To go about as though unimpressed
The defense that seems best to use
Is to not worry, simply just refuse
We cannot change the storms that come around
But we can pick up faith and put worry down

Help me to lay down my troubles at Your feet, to turn loose of my worrying, and to pray!
Thank You, Lord!
