So after my husband gently rebuked me on my stronghold- I went to see what scripture had to say about my planning issues.. And I thought I would share with you some of what I read that really got my attention. (The scripture(s) in Matthew I should know by heart, I have read them so many times.. )
"Be still, and know that I am God"
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and no to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important that food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden light.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
