Good morning.

Today, most of us are overwhelmed, overcommitted, and overworked. Parents feel they are perpetually on the back foot. Retired people are stressed. So are entry-level employees and high school students, who are increasingly being rattled by anxiety and panic attacks. Even the medical doctors who diagnose our stress find themselves overwhelmed just trying to keep up with everything.

So many people are living in survival mode. How did we get there? There is little about our lives that require us to merely survive.

Jesus invites us to live differently, and the benefit is peace.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? ... But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Matthew 6:25, 33-34)

Jesus is asking us to trust Him. When we do, we move from survival mode into a far greater objective - his kingdom and his righteousness.

We can do this. Let's do it.

Have a good week.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
