Let Us Compare Notes

Anyone who knows me knows that I have an issue with anxiety. If you don’t personally know me, let me introduce myself.

“Hello; my name is Kristina and I fight anxiety every single day of my life”

That being acknowledged has thrown me into finding comfort, understanding, and reasoning behind my anxiety. Some answers have been given and others I am still seeking. However, this verse that I have been studying really puts things into perspective. Quite often I overanalyze things. I am the first one to admit this. There is no reason to not admit it with this case either. I may very well have overanalyzed this verse, and if I did, no harm no foul. At least I got into God’s word and dug into it.

Matthew 6: 31-33 NIV

31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

When you read this verse; what does it mean to you? What do you take away from it? I can tell you my perception of it. Let’s just compare notes, shall we?


I am specifically being told not to worry about what I am going to eat, drink or wear.


Other people will chase after these things before they chase after God.


I am being reassured that once I chase after God and understand Him and His kingdom he will supply me with what I actually need; over what I want.

Do you have the same takeaway? If you did not, that is okay. It is okay to discuss different understandings of Bible verses with one another. It is basically just a conversation. Both sides are learning from each other. That is one thing that I love about my church; we all learn from each other. We are not one judging the other over another. I have really never felt so equally loved. I suppose there is no time like the present to admit the fact that my church is my family, and vice versa.

Until Next Time.
