I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

September 22

TRUST ME AND REFUSE TO WORRY, for I am your Strength and Song. You are feeling wobbly this morning, looking at difficult times looming ahead, measuring them against your own strength. However, they are not today’s tasks ― or even tomorrow’s. So leave them in the future and come home to the present, where you will find Me waiting for you. Since I am your Strength, I can empower you to handle each task as it comes. Because I am your Song, I can give you joy as you work alongside Me.
Keep bringing your mind back to the present moment. Among all My creatures, only humans can anticipate future events. This ability is a blessing, but it becomes a curse whenever it is misused. If you use your magnificent mind to worry about tomorrow, you cloak yourself in dark unbelief. However, when the hope of heaven fills your thoughts, the Light of My Presence envelops you. Though heaven is future, it is also presen tense. As you walk in the Light with Me, you have one foot on earth and one foot in heaven.

   The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become
   my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my
   father’s God, and I will exalt him. ー Exodus 15:2

   We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up
   against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought
   to make it obedient to Christ. ー 2 Corinthians 10:5

   Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he
   who promised is faithful. ー Hebrews 10:23
