CAST ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM BECAUSE HE CARES FOR
YOU.    ( 1 PETER 5:7 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
We are often filled with worry and anxiety in the fast paced
World of ours today.  When you think about it, what is worry but
the opposite of faith anyway!

After all Jesus Christ said, “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 IMPORTANT THAN FOOD, AND THE BODY MORE
IMPORTANT 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.
AND WHY DO YOU WORRY ABOUT CLOTHES?  SEE HOW
THE LILIES 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.”
( MATTHEW 6:25-26; & 28-29 )

Therefore Friend, know that God is always with you, and
there is no reason to worry about what might happen.  After all it is
written; 
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW, FOR
TOMORROW WILL WORRY ABOUT ITSELF.  EACH DAY
HAS ENOUGH TROUBLE OF ITS OWN.
( MATTHEW 6:34 )

So instead; DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING,
BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER AND PETITION, WITH
THANKSGIVING, PRESENT YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD.
And; LET THE PEACE OF CHRIST RULE IN YOUR HEARTS,
SINCE AS MEMBERS OF ONE BODY YOU WERE CALLED
TO PEACE.  AND BE THANKFUL.   Amen.
( PHILIPPIANS 4:6 )  &  ( COLOSSIANS 3:15 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
