Why God Commands us Not to Worry

At the end of this next semester, I will be graduated. That comes with a lot of emotions: good, bad, and in-between. In the next few months it feels like there is so much that has to get done, so much I need to be ready for, and a ton of life I have to figure out. I’m barely halfway through summer, a whole six months out from graduation, and I have already found myself unable to sleep at night, anxious and stressed about the next step in my life.
