IT'S ALL GOOD. IT'S NOT THAT DEEP. NO WORRIES

 My title stems from the expression you hear nowadays where people are meaning, " it is okay" or " no problem". Sometimes we may get all keyed up about something and tend to worry or just can not be still and relax. The expressions in my title are 'right on the money'  so to speak, and mean just what they say or in other words "calm down, chill out!" You may think you have hurt  or offended someone and their response is one of the three statements in my title.

How many of us can really do that in situations in life that occur? You may worry what others think or worry about something you have no control over. So let it go already okay? You tell someone it is okay or "not that deep" so let your actions follow that. Basically we are 'not to sweat the small stuff' as they saying goes.

The Bible has lots of wisdom in basically saying the same thing and  before these phrases even were uttered. Philippians 4:6 says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Romans 8:28 says "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Mark 10:18 says ""Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone." Matthew 6:31 says "So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'" Matthew 6:27 says "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"

Forgive people. Don't hold grudges. Stop worrying. Stop freaking out. Everything is going to be okay. It's all good!

 PRAYER: Lord I thank you that you see me through things in life I sometimes initially see as overwhelming. Things aren't that bad if I keep looking to you. Thanks for your promises in the word of God. Help me to remember to keep smiling. In Jesus name. Amen.
