The uncertainties of life are enough to lure one into a state of anxiety and worry. However, since worry has not and will never be a solution to any of life’s challenges, it’s pertinent to heed God’s word and enjoy the peace and rest that comes with it.

The book of John 2:1-11 records how in a marriage ceremony, the hosts ran out of wine and were worried. Jesus and His Mother Mary were in attendance. Mary advised the hosts to go to Jesus and whatever He asks them to do they should do exactly.
