What is the point of worrying? Is there every really one? As the saying goes, worrying today is like borrowing trouble from tomorrow. It doesn’t really get us anywhere, it really only takes joy away from the present moment. The practice of worrying won’t get us the result that we want, in fact it could be quite the opposite. After all they say “what you think about, you bring about”.
Let’s not forget that the Bible says, “Be strong; fear not””. Worrying too much can show a lack of faith which we don’t want. If our faith is strong we will have confidence that God is in control always and will see us through any trials we may have in this life. Hold fast to this and find comfort in knowing that.
One definition of worry is: to use your imagination to create circumstances you do not want. So why would we want to waste time doing that? We won’t gain anything good from worrying about something that we don’t want. Worry has no place in our life, we should cast our cares upon the Lord and know that he is in control. And then let go, whatever happens he will see you through, the good and the bad. Worrying won’t change the outcome. Not to mention the effect that worry has on your health. It can cause stress on your body which can then have a negative effect on your health and mental well-being. There are even some diseases that can be brought on by too much worrying, anxiety and stress. That is not God’s best for your life. So today let’s choose to let worry go and to let God’s promises sink in and trust in Him in our times of trouble and contemplation.
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you”.
