Prayer and not worrying

My heart has lots to say but I need to ask you for something. 

Someone once told me, pray don't worry, you can't do both at the same time ;) 

Will you please pray for me? 

I have two more trips to Haiti this year and I'm nervous about the money. I know God has called me on these trips so even though I am not sure where the money is going to come from, I know it will. Roughly my payment per month is $700. That's a lot of money. I had crazy dreams last night about people donating to my trips.

Thinking about doing the cupcake sale again. And some other things, I just don't have a lot of talent to sell things. Maybe a parents night out. 3 or 4 hours of munchkins running around here to make money. How much do people charge for babysitting?

Just pray please. That I'll have peace and trust God and that the money will come.

He's the Creator of the universe. He owns all the cattle on the hill. Just waiting until He sells a few.

It's no coincidence this was the first thing I ever spoke about...

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life ? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:25-34 NIV)
