Why Worry?

Around this time last year is when my stomach aches started significantly worsening. Just over a month later I learned that I had cancer. At that time anxieties started attacking me from every direction. Am I going to be alright? How will this effect my plans? Will I be able to pay all these bills?

Looking back, I realize how unnecessary my worries were. Apart from some recent post-chemo hair loss, I am fine now; and I have had over $165,000 in medical bills taken away. Yet I still face uncertainties and rough days from time to time. Today seems to be one of those days. And today as I caught myself worrying about things, I had to scold myself for not remembering how God got me through all of those other trying times. God never fails!

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
-Philippians 4:6-7

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD. "For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit."
-Jeremiah 17:7-8

All I can do is to trust in God, and strive to be the best person I can be. Everything else will work itself out.
