| Quoted & Noted #2 |

In today's society it's pretty common to be stressed or worrisome. Everyone is constantly trying to find the next big thing that promises to relax you and relieve your stress. As much as you want those things to work, the only way you're really going to solve your issue is by finding the root of the cause. To some this may seem like a taxing job and they rather pop a pill and fix it only for the time being. But what I've learned, is that when you fix the cause of your problem everything else tends to fall in to place.

Now this bible passage is one of the most comforting and relieving passages I have ever read. Whenever I am stressing myself out because of a test, project, or honestly anything that causes me anxiety, I always look to this passage for guidance. What God is saying is that you can only live for the here and now. The things that occur tomorrow, next week, or even next month, aren't in your hands, and you can't do anything about them. So why worry about them? You can't take the test that's in four days, so why stress yourself out? You can't pay the bill until it's sent to you, so why cause yourself anxiety? These are questions you should be asking yourself every time you are worrying or causing yourself stress. Because as much as you want to control your future, you can't, because it's already in God's hands. And in all honesty, that's where you want it to stay, because if it were up to us, who knows what the world would be like.
