Stress and Anxiety

Well, if you know me, you'd know that I sometimes tend to stress over things a bit too much. Maybe you have this problem, too. Lying in bed at night, worrying over the days events, and how "I should've done this, and I should've done that," and then stressing over tomorrow's activity and all those "what ifs".
There's a passage in the Bible that always seem to be speaking directly to me, as if God was gently reminding me of what is truly important.
It's in Luke 10:38-42.

Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet and heard his word.
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, "Lord dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she help me."
And Jesus answered and said unto her, "Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

"Thou art careful and troubled about many things."
That seems to describe me pretty well. The gentle, soothing way He says, "Martha, Martha," seems to warm my whole being.
He really does care about how this moody, rather over-dramatic, teenager feels.  
I pray that God will help me to be more like Mary, and that I'll learn to leave everything, totally and fully to Him. God bless you all this beautiful day! :)
