Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  Don't worry, be happy.

7 reasons not to worry.

Read Matthew 6:25-34. In my Life Application Bible, it paraphrases it for us.

1. The same God who created life in you can be trusted with the details of your life. (Matt. 6:25)

2. Worrying about the future hampers your efforts for today. (Matt. 6:26)

3. Worrying is more harmful than helpful. (Matt. 6:27)

4. God does not ignore those who depend on Him. (Matt. 6:28-30)

5. Worry shows a lack of faith in and understanding of God. (Matt 6:31,32)

6. There are real challenges God wants us to pursue, and worrying keeps us from them. (Matt. 6:33)

7. Living one day at a time keeps us from being consumed with worry. (Matt. 6:34)

As you guys know, worry and stress go hand-in-hand. Please take these 7 points to heart. Trust in God and let Him carry your stress and worry. I know there are times when you might be "concerned" about things, but the Bible tells us, not only in Matthew but throughout its pages, that God will be there for you.

I WILL NEVER make lite of God's Word, I believe it is our guide through our daily walk here on earth. But if you still feel a little stressed, click on the title of this article and hit the pig, maybe that will help.

God bless,
