"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6

Worrying isn't beneficial for anyone. It gives you something to do but it won't get you anywhere. You know the saying, "Worrying is like a rocking chair-it's always in motion, but it never gets you anywhere." It's a negative thought and a lot of times, the negative thought turns out to be just that, a negative thought. Most things you worry about never happen.

It's normal to be concerned about situations and the bad things that take place in this world, but we have to be careful not to let the devil cause us to get to the point of being concerned beyond reason or to worry.

How do you keep yourself from worrying?

"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6,7

Worrying won't change a thing for you, but trusting in Jesus will. Humble yourself and cast your cares upon Him. The time spent constantly worrying about a situation you can't change can be spent praising Jesus for working it out for you. He cares for you.

Be blessed.

At some point in life, you might find yourself asking God the following questions:

"Where are You?"

 "Do You hear me?"

 "Do You care?"

When we call out to God, we are prepared to hear from Him, but sometimes there is silence. In these times it feels like God is far from us and and some might feel like pulling away. Do not pull away from God. Draw closer to Him. Keep seeking Him. God's silence is not His absence, nor does it mean that He does not hear your prayers. 

"Evening and morning and at noon
I will pray, and cry aloud,
And He shall hear my voice." Psalm 55:17

"Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me." Psalm 139:7-10

Be blessed.

When it is time to walk away, walk away. God has a good plan for your life and obviously, it never included or no longer includes whatever it is you should walk away from now. It is not always easy to do, but trust Him. Trust His direction. Yes, you have to walk away, but understand, it is in order to walk to something better.

Walking away from something we wish to hold on to or do not feel quite ready to leave, often causes disappointment. Trusting the perfect God who makes all things good causes that disappointment to fade. Look ahead. Get excited. Keep your eyes open. God has something better coming your way.

"God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us." Hebrews 11:40 

Be blessed.
