“Tomorrow will take care of itself”

A friend of mine once told me that when big things come up in life, all we can do is pray, trust in God, and then worry about it.  We humans have a hard time not worrying, but Jesus tells us in today’s Gospel that He’ll take care of us, that Providence never fails. God takes care of things, always. Believing in him means believing in this promise. Worrying is useless.  I keep a prayer journal. It’s funny to reread it. I look back at all the worries I poured into this or that, and all I have to do is turn the pages to see that it all works out. At the end of our lives, let’s hope not too many of our pages have been spent worrying, and that far more are spent in celebrating God’s Providence, a providence that never fails.
