A word from our Rector..... 



"So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.  Today's trouble is enough for today."

                                                                                Matthew 6:34

     We have all been told that we should put any problems that worry us into God's hands.  It is very easy to say those words, but for many of us, it is a difficult thing to do.  We like to be in control of things;  however, as we grow older, we find that we don't always have control.

     Often I agonize and pray about something I am worried about.  I wake up during the night agonizing.  After a couple of days I find I am no longer concerned.  I know that God has helped me.

     Sometimes we need to focus on happenings other than our own worries.  If we live day by day, our troubles will be much easier to handle.  And, if of course, we need to talk to God about what is bothering us, we may find that a quiet time helps us to think about solutions to our concerns.  We can be ready for any outcome if we let God, the most wonderful God, come into our lives and help us.

     Take time to think about the many times you were worried and God stood beside you.  How has he helped you through difficult times in your past?

     "Dear God, who shares all our worries, help us to put our faith and trust in you.  We will try to place more of our problems into your hands so that you can help us.  Amen"
