1. Thank you so much for putting this verse on your blog. I will be looking it up soon. I don't know that I have ever noticed it before. I have fought many battles with worry over the years. My 26 year old son was killed in a car accident 14 months ago. He left behind a wife and son. It is very easy to worry that something will happen to someone else that I love along with my other long, long list of things I think about, dwell on, stress about often and like you said those are just other words for worry. Even though we lost our children at very different ages, we both know the sharp pain of losing one of your precious ones. I have read your blog several times and come away reminded of how important God's word is in my life. Thank you.

  2. Hi,
    What a great reminder for us all not to worry…but maybe "to be concerned with things and people"

    I have learned a long time ago from my relationship with Jesus, not to worry. I believe he prefers that we ARE CONCERNED rather than worry.

    Sometimes Jesus may share his loving words to me and I publish them on my blog…(there was one regarding Worrying)

    Keep up your great blog…

    and also to NITA'S NOTES…
    I am so sorry about your son's passing recently. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
    May God Bless both you ladies, Nita and Sandy.

  3. Nita's Notes:

    I am so very, very sorry about the loss of your son. My heart aches for you today. Please know I'm praying for you and your son's wife and son. Thank you for reading my blog. When I get comments like yours, I realize it's all worth it.

    K. Frangeskos,

    Thanks for your consistently encouraging comments. I agree…Jesus wants us to be concerned but not to worry. Great point.


  4. Whoa, Nelly! Your POST smacked ME in the forehead. I sometimes deal with worry in the "drifting off to sleep" and the "starting to wake up" parts of my day.

    That scripture is a great reminder.
    Thanks for another great post.
    Love you!

    I just finished praying for you and your family. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. Sending a big hug your way…


  5. I think that is perhaps the greatest difference I have experienced after conversion. I simply no longer worry. I was with Austrian friends this week; we spent some time walking around the Alps (hiking would be too energetic a word for our pace). They had not seen me since my conversion, and they told that they noticed that I was far more peaceful and unworried now.

    Nita, let me add my condolences to others. I lost my cousin at about the same age to someone running him off the road and stealing his Christmas bonus from his dead body. He left behind a wife and three toddler sons. It all worked out in the long run, but it was not an easy journey. My prayers are with you.
