I woke up this morning, turn on the computer...browse a bit about some stuffs and came across a quote that can somehow be a guideline when I worry about something. Often we came across something accidentally but then that little something can be meaningful for us. Just like the quote below, it's one of those quote I will always look up when I started to worry about something in the future =) It's a quote of Francis Chan, an American preacher. Hope you like it..
“Worry implies that we don’t quite trust God is big enough, powerful enough, or loving enough to take care of what’s happening in our lives. Stress says the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace towards others, or our tight grip of control. Basically, these two behaviors communicate that it’s okay to sin and not trust God because the stuff in my life is somehow exceptional. Both worry and stress reek of arrogance. They declare our tendency to forget that we’ve been forgiven, that our lives are brief … and that in the context of God’s strength, our problems are small, indeed.”
