other peoples' words

a friend shared the quote below on twitter today, and i wanted to pass it along:

"Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows but only empties today of its strength."
~Charles Spurgeon

and a favorite verse:

"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?"
~ Matthew 6:25-27

grateful for these words, and seeking to increase my trust in God for all the silly or not-so-silly things that tempt me to anxiety. 

grateful, so grateful, for a God who hears every prayer i pray.
