Worries, 2012

Worrying about tomorrow is like setting up your umbrella, because rain is predicted for tomorrow ...

 

Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful hart. And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4, 6-7)
Look at the birds in the air: they neither sow nor reap nor fill barns. It is God who feeds them. (Matthew 6, 26)

Suddenly a strong wind came up, and the waves began to spill over into the boat, so that it was about to fill with water. Jesus was in the back of the boat sleeping with his head on a pillow. The disciples woke him up and said: “Teacher don’t you care that we are about to die?” Jesus stood up and commanded the wind “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves: “Be still”. The wind died down and there was a great calm. Than Jesus said to his disciples: “Why are you frightened? Have you still no faith?” (Marc 4, 37- 40)

On the waves of life

You’re a captain next to God.
To go the right course,

She carries the problems of life and is supported in that.
