Have you ever been caught in this snare?

"Give us today our daily bread."
Matthew 6:11

Whatever your heavenly Father calls you to, He will
support you under. But He will not give the manna
for tomorrow, or strengthen you for the next trial,
while you have it only in anticipation. "As your days,
so shall your strength be." And herein I read my own
foolishness; often wearing out present strength with
fears and forebodings of future trials; thus far
disregarding present mercies, and rebelling against
the Lord's will, because unlawfully anticipating it.

Being naturally of an anxious mind, I must say that
thus foolish and ignorant have I often been, and
surprised when brought to discover how much I was
dragging into the present hour, what did not belong
to it.
Have you ever been caught in this snare?

"So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will
 bring its own worries.
Each day has enough trouble
 of its own."
Matthew 6:34
