Don’t Worry

Worry is a two- syllable word that refers to thoughts, images, emotions, and actions of a negative nature in a repetitive uncontrollable manner.  This destructive pattern results from a proactive cognitive risks analysis to solve potential threats or potential consequences.  Trying to make sense of things out of your control or contemplating all the worst-case scenarios will drive you mad.

By worrying, you cannot add a single day to your life.  However, you can certainly take away from your life.  Here are some interesting facts about worry and anxiety:

  1. It can cause health issues such as chest pains, digestive issues, nausea, and headaches.
  2. It can cause an increase in addiction risks.
  3. It can be hereditary- passed down to you and from you.
  4. It is the most common mental health issue in the United States.
  5. Women are more likely to have anxiety than men.
  6. It can trigger or be accompanied by other disorders.

As you can see, nothing about worry appears to be healthy or productive.  Rather, worry and anxiety rob us from a peaceful and joyful life that we are promised we can have.  Not all things in this life will be good.  However, the Bible, God’s promise to mankind, is filled with encouragement to help us during our times of deep concern and heavy cares.  We are instructed to give those things that we care deeply about to God because He cares for us.  To be able to pass those things off to someone far greater and more powerful than us can bring about an instant relief if we choose to believe. 

We are also assured that we are not to worry about our provisions because our Heavenly Father cares more about those things than we do.  He knows what we need before we ask.  And, better still,  He is the One has the ability to meet all those needs.  This is the hope that we hold on to during those intense moments of wondering if what we have will be enough. 

I am personally reminded of a day long ago when my conversation with God went something like this, “God, I am in need.  If I were to share this need with my father- in-law, Dallas Henderson, I know what he would do.  He is loving, kind, generous, and benevolent.  You made him that way.  He loves his kids and would not want to see us in this lack.  However, You tell me in Your Word that You love me even more then he loves me.  What are You going to do about this situation?”  I am happy to report, I did not die of despair that day.  My Heavenly Father came through for me and my family.  He takes what appears to not be enough and makes it more than enough.    I don’t know how He does it, but I do know why.  The reason is because He loves us deeply and cares for those things that concern us.

So, don’t worry.  He will make sure you have what you need.  May your faith grow stronger and your trust in Him grow deeper.  Let Your Heavenly Father take the load of worry as your soul prospers in peace and joy.  Let’s keep growing and going.  It’s a good time to be you!

Peace and Joy,
