In Him All Things Hold Together

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together”.

 

-Colossians 1:15-17

 

            Quite often, I get caught up in anxiety and worry over something that is really insignificant.  I make mountains out of mole-hills.  I know that God tells us not to worry; that worry doesn’t add a single day to our lives.  I could even read those scriptures about worry and still worry.  What I have to do when I am anxious is simply to focus on Jesus; His greatness, His might, His wisdom, His power, and the fact that He died for me.  I am saved through his blood, shed on the cross.  Many times, whatever it is that is bothering me and has me worrying will be forgotten in a matter of hours, days, or weeks.  I try to always ask myself, will this matter in 5 years?  The answer is almost always NO.  But will God still be God, and will Jesus still have the supremacy in all things?  YES!
