Let's Talk About Worry
Have you ever prayed about a situation, then continued to worry about it, endlessly?
Then, the situation was resolved, and you were wondering why you spent
ALL THAT TIME
If you're nodding, know I'm right there with you.
It all comes down to this...
Do we trust God?
Do we trust Him to work everything out for our good?
(Romans 828, Proverbs 3:5-6, Jeremiah 17:7)
If the answer is yes (and the answer IS yes)...we have to let our actions and minds follow what we believe.
We can't pick back up what we have already given to God.
Practically though, what does this look like?
>> Actively telling ourselves to stop worrying about the situation.
>> Stopping ourselves and praying about it instead.
>> Meditating on God's Word, and letting His Word fill our minds so that the worry doesn't have room.
>> Listening to worship music (and letting it get stuck in our heads) so that we don't have any room for worst-case scenario-ing.
It's hard. It takes practice.
But trusting Jesus
is worth it.
