My mother used to tell me not to be such a worry wart. I don’t hear that phrase used much these days. Now people say “chill” or “no problem” to indicate they are not overly concerned about things. Apparently, I am a worry wart. Have you seen a wart? They are not pretty, and we want to hide them. Does it make a person ugly when they worry? Does worry manifest itself in our appearance? Does worry manifest itself in our health or lack thereof?
Maybe that’s why God wants us to have less fear and more faith. He wants us to plan, but He wants us to include Him in the plan and rely on Him to guide us in the right direction. We pray as we plan, trusting that He will help us in all ways. Faith takes the pressure off of our shoulders – and lessens our fears. When you pray instead of worry – what a difference it makes!
In all matters – big and small – we seek God and trust His wisdom and His way to make things work out. He’s so faithful to us every time. Regardless of the problem, we know He will be there with us. It’s been my experience that God’s way of working things out is so much more creative than anything I could think of. So many times He has worked things out for me and I just smile and look up and say – “Lord… I KNOW that was YOU!” Don’t forget to thank Him and praise Him for all the great answers He comes up with! ❤
God wants us to have JOY in HIM… and if we spend our days worrying about things, it steals that joy! Don’t worry about anything – pray instead because God is listening and He can be trusted to handle the issues in your life. Trade your worries for His blessed peace. 🙂
Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better. – Walt Disney
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. – Leo Buscaglia
