Why Worry?

Worry is the cause of many of the world’s problems. It is a warning sign that God is not first in my life at this point in time. Don’t ruin today by worrying about yesterday’s problems.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of it’s sorrows, but it empties today of its peace. A day worrying is more exhausting than a day of hard work. Nothing wastes more energy than worrying. It’s a total waste of time. It’s useless. Worry raises your blood pressure, hardens arteries, causes depression, damages health, increases your stress levels and makes you feel miserable. It gives you headaches and sleepless nights and robs you of peace of mind. It’s a slow killer. There is no pill you can take to stop worrying; no seminar, book or tape will stop you worrying.

The answer is to put God in control of your life. Trust him. He is in charge and He understands. Leave tomorrow to God. Live one day at a time. Don’t open your umbrella until it starts raining and don’t cross bridges until you reach them. Hand over everything to God, yourself, your problems, plans and health, everything. Surrender and abandon yourself to him. Surrender your family to Him. Your future is in God’s hands and in God’s hands you are in safe hands. Trust Him and all will be well. Easier said than done.

It may take time. But it works.
