Why Do I Worry?

As some of you know, it's been hard for us financially in recent times. Basically, we had two very large bills due next month. Quite honestly, I didn't see where it would come from. I had an interview this morning 1.5 hrs away (yet another blessing)... so I was praying on the way there. I was praying through the following from Matthew 6:
For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? "Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?

After praying through these things, I was asking Him about those that are starving to death... realizing that we have so much more than them. I was asking Him if He was truly glorified through the trials of His children... and asking Him why it wouldn't glorify Him even more for Him to provide for their needs just as He promised.

I got home from the interview and mom broke the news to me that she had received a letter in the mail and after calling about it... turned out that she and my sister had a large sum of money (basically matching the amount of the two bills) that they hadn't claimed for a minor car accident back in 2006. God has once again proven His faithfulness far beyond what I can imagine.

Praise the Lord! My dad has been laid off for a year, and I'm in college, so I often find myself worrying about finances. Thank you for you testimony!
