The worries: those things I used to get about everything, in the waiting, in the suspension, hanging onto life by a thread. Every little ~ and big ~ thing worried me. The effect it had on me was pointless. But it did manage to accomplish one thing … it sucked away my joy and peace and gratefulness.

As soon as I chose to see with my heart and soul what my eyes and mind already knew… that it was a life sucker… I was released from its stronghold. I realized through listening to Jesus when He said to let tomorrow worry about itself that tomorrow never comes. It never comes. And like I said yesterday when I wrote about how I was Gifted Patience


So now…
I go to Him with every concern ~ no matter how big or how small ~ so it does not overtake me.

I choose to cuddle in His arms like my child has always done with me when she has a worry. We go to the lap of Jesus together.

Life is much easier with the cuddle effect.

Tomorrow never comes… live for today!


Live Grateful,

  1. Thank you for that reminder to live in this moment. My devotional reading today was about letting God take care of the future – maybe I need to hear something today…. 😉 Stopping by from FMF.


  2. I pray I can learn to live everyday in the cuddle effect. My life has always focused on the worries, the ‘what-ifs’. Most of those worries never came because tomorrow never did. Thanks for sharing.
