Jesus said, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life…your heavenly Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
– Matthew 6:25,32-34
Jesus teaches us to put our trust in God’s fatherly providence and to abandon ourselves into the arms of God. Our Lord exhorts us to go about our daily tasks serenely and not to worry uselessly about what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow. What is important, what is within our reach, is to live in God’s presence and make good use of the present moment.
"Do your duty `now’, without looking back on `yesterday’, which has already passed, or worrying over `tomorrow’, which may never come for you"
– St. Josemaria Escriva
My Lord and my God, my Shepherd, my King,
I know You are with me always
…so why do I worry and get so anxious?
teach me how to trust fully in You,
help me seek Your comforting Word,
and to adhere to Your wisdom.
increase my faith,
strengthen my hope,
intensify my trust
