The worries of this world just crush me


#1

the economy, my job, my son's poor health (not life threatening, just nagging), politics, the future of our nation, etc., etc. man, i worry a lot. not the christian thing to do, i know, but i have a hard time helping it.

My friend gave me this verse a while ago and it really encouraged me :)

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart!** I have overcome the world**."
Jesus

This is the Scripture i randomly turned to in my Bible to answer your question after i asked in prayer for God to guide me;

"Behold, the hour cometh, and it is now come, that you shall be scattered every man to his own and shall leave me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace.** In the world you shall have distress. But have confidence. I have overcome the world." (Jn 16:32-33)**

Wow, that is truly scary! It is reminiscent of how St. Augustine randomly opened Sacred Scripture in answer to his prayers!

Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, Ora Pro Nobis Peccatoribus!
