No Worries

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” –Jesus, Luke 12:25   Life's circumstances include issues and problems - I worry about them all.

I worry about hearing God and discerning His will and direction. [bctt…

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
