Why ya gotta worry?

Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia

I think we often don't listen to the lyrics of songs we are listening to.  But when I heard this song yesterday, the lyrics really hit me.  It's not a religious song but it is so true.  We worry and fret.  Yet God tell us He has a plan for us.  He tells us that He cares for the birds and the flowers, and He will do more so for us.  
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
The birds are still being cared for.  The flowers are still being cared for.  Why are we still worrying?  God has a plan; His plan is so much greater than ours could ever be.

Stop worrying.  Enjoy the flowers.  Thank God for His wonderful plan for us.  

“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 splendor 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 you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  Matthew 6:25-31
