Luvs, not only are we not in control of the future, we don't KNOW what the future holds so why worry about it? Has worry and anxiety ever solved any problems? Nope! All worry and anxiety does is make you sick and that definitely is not from God. For example, I had a specialist tell me eleven years ago that I needed a cochlear implant because my hearing is so bad. He said, "It's not IF you need a cochlear implant, but WHEN you need one because you will go totally deaf soon." I told him that he hadn't factored God into the equation. Well, here I am, eleven years later, and haven't lost any more hearing. Now, I could have worried about that for eleven years and caused needless anxiety and pain, but I chose to take just one day at a time.
I have a lot on my plate right now, too, besides fibro. I was killed in the stock market and if I look at the future and what is going on in this world, it doesn't look that great. But, I haven't factored God into the equation. When I do that, I get a smile on my face. When I get stressed about something, I visually "hand" the problems over to God because He is in control...not me. I can't do anything on my own. And I take one day at a time. No more.
I wish I could go into more detail but we can't get too "religious" on the forum but my faith has gotten me this far in life and it will see me to the end when I go to be with my husband.

God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
