Feb 13, 2015 – Friday Inspiration: No Shaking, God Is In Control..Don’t Worry, Be Happy
I want to use this medium to encourage someone out there especially those that wrote me for counselling.
Whatever you’re looking up to God for, believe by faith that you will receive them in due time and relax in hope.
Please do not waste any minute of your life in doubts and fears: spend your time on the task at hand, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.
If you are a Christian, Jesus warned against worry in Mathew 6:35 …..Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own
Below are some encouragement quotes for today:
