What has been accomplished by worrying? Has God moved faster? Did a million dollars magically appear in your bank account? Did that paper that’s due end up writing itself?
If you answered yes to any of those questions? Please let Sisters Helping Sisters know! ☺ But chances are, you answered no to all of those questions. And that’s a good thing!
Worrying is tiresome. Just downright exhausting. It makes you weary. It taps you of your strength. It strips you of your peace. And it is evidence that you aren’t trusting God and that you are trusting all in yourself.
Why subscribe to the weariness of worry when you can believe in the promise of peace? Why believe in the agony of anxiety when you can attach yourself to the promise of provision? Anxiety and worry gets you nowhere, friend.
God makes it plain and simple for us to understand. So let’s stop worrying, it yields no fruit! When you want to worry and become anxious, instead of running to yourself or the world’s logic, let’s run to the word of God:
“So I tell you, don’t worry about the things you need to live—what you will eat, drink, or wear. Life is more important than food, and the body is more important than what you put on it. Look at the birds. They don’t plant, harvest, or save food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. Don’t you know you are worth much more than they are? If God makes what grows in the field so beautiful, what do you think he will do for you? It’s just grass—one day it’s alive, and the next day someone throws it into a fire. But God cares enough to make it beautiful. Surely he will do much more for you. Your faith is so small! That’s what those people who don’t know God are always thinking about. Don’t worry, because your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things. So don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Tomorrow will have its own worries.” Matthew 6:25-26, 30, 32-32, 34 ERV
Stop wearing the weariness of worry and put on the joy of the Lord.
Peace and Blessings
