Do not be anxious about your life

With several upcoming decisions and changes to be made, life has been as exciting and troubling as it can be for the past months. Every time I got worked up and anxious, little reminders popped up.
Don't worry, things will be fine
God is in control
God has his perfect plan

God will guide
Remember how God watched over the last time?

Yes, I know all these deep in my heart. But, how challenging it can be to have 100% faith at all times and leave all things in the hands of the Lord. Then, I was assured and touched by Luke 12 and Matthew 6.

Therefore I tell you, do no 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? And why are you anxious about clothing? 

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the over, will he not much cloth you, O you of little faith? 

Therefore, not be anxious, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?". For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble
Matthew 6: 25-34

How beautifully written is this! We are his children whom he loves dearly! No, I'm not saying that life isn't going to be perfect and we just need to sit back and relax, but God promises to protect and provide when we seek first God's kingdom and his righteousness.

Is any of you feeling burdened?
I pray that you will open up your heart and get to know the love of the heavenly Father.
