Whatever is worrying you today, no matter how mundane or how personal, how big or how small, it is not your concern. If you have given your life over to God, you have also given over everything in your life. It’s no longer your problem—it’s God’s.
Trust in Jesus’ words. Believe them for what they are: a call to put your mind where your faith is.
—Patricia Wilson, Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer (Upper Room Books, 2013)

He said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.”
—Luke 12:22-23 (NRSV)
