So calm down

"The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.
I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, who are among you, to whom reproach is a burden."  - Zephaniah  3:17 - 18

It is so easy in life to get worked up about little things. To worry over trifle matters. We think "I just can't deal with it any more!" but we don't have to.  The Lord our God is in our midst. He will quiet us with His love. He will calm us with His peace. He will bring us comfort.
The Lord is peace, love, serenity. And He desires the best for us, which means not to get all frazzled constantly, about things that don't matter. This world does not matter.  What you do with your life, does. Think about it. When Jesus was on earth, did He get all worked up about His days being so full with people that needed healing? No! And shouldn't we want to be just like Him? Isn't He our ultimate role model? Our lives are so easy. Yet we rarely take the time to realize this. I need to be reminded of this often. This world and the things of the world do not matter. Our relationship with the Lord is what matters the most.
