We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength. Corie Ten Boom 18. Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe youyou of little faith? So do not worry, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear? For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:2434 NIV11-GK) 19. (Matthew 6:913 NIV11)(Matthew 6:913 NIV11) How does this help worry?How does this help worry?

Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:34 NIV11) Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:34 KJV) 21. Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful (Colossians 4:2 NIV11) 22. Worry Pray Can I take action?

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. (Psalm 139:23 NIV11) 24. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. (Psalms 94:19 NIV11) 25. Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. (Proverbs 12:25 NIV11) 26. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:1618 NIV11) 27. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7 NIV11)
