Every being on earth that has breath cannot deny the fact that at some point, ’worrying’ about ‘something’ or a ‘circumstance’ may have been the only option available at that instance.



Even Jesus in the first decade of the sorrowful mysteries, ‘the agony in the garden’, worried for what was to become of him. So who then is exempted?


“So do not start worrying: ‘Where will my food come from? Or my drink? Or my clothes?’ (These are what the pagans are always concerned about). Your father knows that you need all these things. Instead, be concerned with the kingdom of God and with what he requires of you.” [Matthew 6: 31 – 33]


The gospel reading of yesterday, Sunday 26th urges us to do exactly the opposite of worrying. Not been anxious of events has a lot to do with always having a positive mindset and a large reserve of faith.




‘When we strive to follow the instructions of God, we’ll be less likely to worry.’


As a young Christian living in a country experiencing turbulence in various sectors of the economy, little is taken away from the thought of not worrying over situations because it is a norm.


‘Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.’ St. Augustine




Making out time to pray in the presence of God for our needs is a sacrifice one has to strive to make daily because everything we have belongs to Him.


‘So the Lord answered, “Can a woman forget her own baby and not love the child she bore? Even if a mother should forget her child, I will never forget you.”’ [Isaiah 49: 15]


May He not forget us in our time of need, Amen!
