A Worry-Less & Trust-More Perspective

Trusting God is sometimes a multi-faceted deal. I say I trust God (and believe I DO trust God) but then get all anxious and worried about things. As we do a little housecleaning in our hearts this Advent, it might be a good time to sweep out anxious ponderings and worries that cripple our forward momentum.

Here’s a favorite quote I pull out every so often for a worry-less/trust-more perspective.

“Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life in fear; rather look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He has kept you hitherto – do you but hold fast to His dear hand, and He will lead you safely through all things; and, when you cannot stand, He will bear you in His arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow: the same everlasting Father who cares for you today, will take care of you tomorrow, and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.” St. Francis de Sales
