Anxious and Worried

October 4, 2022

Each day, I reflect upon a word or a phrase inspired by the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.”  (Luke 10:38-42)

ANXIOUS AND WORRIED: We all have a bit of Martha in us, don’t we? We get so caught up in the stuff of our lives, that we lose focus.

Maybe, like Martha, we worry about all that we have to do. Or perhaps our minds are full of “could haves” and “should haves” – we spend our time worrying about things that happened in the past over which we have no control or we anxiously look ahead to what may or may not happen in the future.

So much of our time is spent looking back or looking forward that we lose sight of the here and now. When we are not living in the present, we are not being present to others. In addition, we are not being open to the presence of God.

Remember, God comes to you everyday, disguised as your life.
