Sabbath Keeping

~ God's message to Glenda ~
"I have been young and now am old 
and have not seen His righteous forsaken 
nor His seed beg for bread."  
~ Psalm 37:25 ~
"Worry compromises your joy, 
cramps your peace 
and confines your freedom." 
~ June Hunt ~
"Worry is like a rocking chair. 
It gives you something to do 
but it doesn't get you anywhere." 
~ anonymous ~
"Worry is the darkroom where negatives are developed." 
~ anonymous ~
"There is a great difference between worry and concern. 
A worried person sees a problem 
and a concerned person solves a problem."  
~ Harold Stephens ~
"Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength-carrying two days at once. I tis moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength." ~ Corrie ten Boom ~
"If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep."  ~ Dale Carnegie ~
"Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow." 
~ proverb ~
"You can't start worrying about what's going to happen. You get spastic enough worrying about what's happening now." ~ Lauren Bacall ~
"Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due."
~ W. R. Inge ~
"Worry is spiritual short sight.
Its cure is intelligent faith."
~ Paul Brunton ~
"Every evening I turn my worries over to God. 
He's going to be up all night anyway."
~ Mary C. Crowley ~
"The more you pray, the less you'll panic. The more you worship, the less you worry. You'll feel more patient and less pressured." ~ Rick Warren
"When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened." ~ Winston Churchill ~
"If we are worried about the future, then we must look today at the upbringing of children. ~ Gordon C. Hinckley
"Sorrow looks back. Worry looks around, Faith looks up." 
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, 
for tomorrow will worry about itself. 
Each day has enough trouble of its own." 
~ Matthew 6:34 ~

  1. What a lovely treat, as I am up EARLY this morning. What would we be like, Sandra, if we really believed the depth of God's love for us?

    God loves, Sandra, too.

    Sending my love, as well.

  3. Good morning, good Sandra!
    I like all the quotes. I was a worrying sort of child and the Lord has lifted that worry and concern. I clung/cling to the knowledge that I am His concern and I can cast my cares upon Him. I'm SO thankful.
    I pray you'd sense His angels gathered around you today.

  5. to Glenda...worry is an insult to God! I heard that quote once and so rather than worry or when I get to that state, I stop, say 'okay God, this is yours so it's off my heart and mind. Take it!'and then trustin the process. NO, it is not easy but I spend less time thinking about what I can't control.

  6. I like the one about worry and concern, that is a new spin to me! These are all good, too. I may record them for our prayer line at church. God gives us the ability to get through each day, not the future, it is too much.
