Worry Beads

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:31-33

A nervous passenger fingered a small set of smooth beads.  They were called komboloi or worry beads.  The word means “group of knots.” Possibly from the knotted prayer strands used by Greek Orthodox monks.

Gail was seated across the aisle as their plane left the runway.
She was worried, too. But not about the flight.  She was being laid off work.  Would she soon have enough money for food, rent and clothes?

Gail opened her Bible and began reading Mathew chapter six.  God was clearly communicating not to worry.  Gail read, “Your heavenly Father already knows…” And later, she saw God provide just what she needed, when she needed it.

Friend, God knows exactly what you’re going through.  Pray and seek His wisdom.  He loves you and has a plan for your life.
