Worry. Such a dastardly thing! It eats us alive and makes us older than we are. It creates stress, which in turn, wreaks havoc on our bodies. Sorry, but I can’t think of a single good thing that comes from worrying.
Over the course of my life, there have been more than plenty of things to worry about! But you know what? My worrying didn’t change the outcome of a single event! Not even once.
How about you? Can you name just one time that your worry changed anything? Jesus says in Matt: 6, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Read the whole story in verses 25-34.
Thinking things through and then taking any appropriate action to help a situation is different from worrying. But there are times when you can’t even do that.
No, I wasn’t. And the reason – God is in control! He knows all about it. He knows who needs that job and who will have it. If I trust God to do the best for me, should I not trust Him to do the best for others?
