"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.

  1. Thanks for sharing this wonderful truth, Misty! Amen and amen!! I wish we could convey this to others who seem to continually worry and think they can't change. I am glad we know better...thanks for this encouragement!
