Worried Woman

by sandihester

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life…”  Matthew 6:25

Do not fret – it leads only to evil.  Psalm 37:8

I’m putting this picture as the fourth in the Lady Series.  This was the first lady I painted.  I really like how she turned out, however she looks a little stressed.  Ladies, do you realize Jesus commands us not to worry?  It’s really a trust issue.  Do we really trust that the One who created the heavens and the earth – the One who knit us together in our mother’s womb – can really take care of our sick child, the bills, or the bad marriage?  Can we really trust Him with those things?  Does He really care about those things?  YES!

A while back, I memorized Psalm 37 and was surprised to learn that fretting (another word for worrying) leads to nothing good – in fact, it leads only to evil.  Hmmm, I think there’s some serious truth to that!
