Psalm 23:4 says: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."
Yet so many people worry about such small things.
We should live our lives fully and having fun, not filled with worry, because it's all in His hands.
When I was little, after I learned about death, I was terrified of it. But after I learned that I was going to go to a beautiful Kingdom, I never worried about it again. Death isn't meant to be a scary thing, because God will take you when he needs you. He does everything for a reason.
After that, I went through this phase where my only worry was suffering. I had before: deaths, injuries, medical problems, etc. But I watch Joel Osteen every Sunday and I remember one where he discussed how many people worry about everything and how it's in God's hands and I realized that I can sit there and worry and waste my life away, but that's not what God wants and it's not going to change His plans for me.
So maybe this quote isn't proper English, its the truth. All you need is faith and you can do almost anything. Sure, I can pray and pray (and I do!) but God has His plans for me no matter what. So don't waste your life away by worrying about things that aren't in your control.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time. - Mark Twain
