Stop Worrying

"Your Father knows what you need before you ask him. So I tell you to stop worrying about what you will eat, drink, or wear. Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothes? Don't ever worry and say, 'What are we going to eat?' or 'What are we going to drink?' or 'What are we going to wear?' Everyone is concerned about these things, and your heavenly Father certainly knows you need all of them. But first, be concerned about his kingdom and what has his approval. Then all these things will be provided for you. So don't ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Matthew 6:8b,25,31-34)

If you have talked to me recently then I have probably expressed my worry about being ready for the baby. I keep praying for Him to take this worry away and lifting my worries to Him, but I still worry. I think this is a part of my "irrational fears" that the pregnancy books talk about. I feel a little better since I have ordered diapers from g diapers and that my friend is giving us a crib. Another friend helped me feel more prepared by going with me to start our registry so I would have things on there that we need. Wow, this post just helped me realize that He is providing the support that I need. Thanks!

    I would like to share this gem with you that will inspire all of us.

    He is the Comforter (John 14:26). As the soothing voice of a loving parent can quiet a crying child, the whisperings of the Spirit can calm our fears, hush the nagging worries of our life, and comfort us when we grieve. The Holy Ghost can fill us "with hope and perfect love" and "teach [us] the peaceable things of the kingdom" (Moroni 8:26; D&C 36:2).

    Yes. The Holy spirit will help us stop worrying. feel gratitude. and be happy.
