Don't Sweat It

I watched a great virtual concert by Sidewalk Prophets at the Ryman Auditorium last week. If you missed it, you can watch the recorded video HERE on Facebook Live. This concert was promoting their new album, The Things That Got Us Here.

All the songs on this album are written from a place of uncertainty, yet in a sanctuary of peace, the honest, Gospel-focused nature provides a type of sanctuary for listeners, who may also find themselves in the middle of an uncertain time. One of the new songs on this album is really pertinent with our current situation living with the pandemic and other societal issues that are causing a lot of stress in our lives. It is a catchy tune written by Matthew West called Don't Sweat It.
Don't you worry 'bout tomorrow
Let tomorrow worry 'bout itself
Take the trouble that you've borrowed
Throw it right back on the shelf

Don't sweat it
I know you won't regret it
Just go on and forget it
Don't let it run away with your life
Don't sweat it

He meant it when He said it
He's always in control
Let it go
Leave your worries behind
Don't sweat it
This is a song you can cling to in the midst of those troubles, but also can sing in the moments of joy and celebration. A song that will bring assurance in the chaos and peace in the storm, encouragement to keep going, and remind us that God is always in control. I hope you enjoy it...
