Week 19/52 #Weeklies
In Philippians 4: 6 it says:
HAVE NO ANXIETY AT ALL.
In the Jerusalem Bible version, verse 6 translates as “Do not worry.”
… we find ourselves worrying about many things: finances, the situation of our livelihood, our deteriorating health, broken relationships in family and community, the future of our children, and much more.
Let's look at the stats about worry:
We do not know what the future will bring. That is the hardest part. Since there are infinite possibilities then if there are positive infinite possibilities, there could also be negative infinite possibilities… and that is scary, so we worry.
We love to do multi-tasking or doing a lot of things, to keep our mind occupied.
We also worry because we can’t do anything about it. If we can’t find a solution to our problems, oh we definitely worry… that sometimes, worrying is a habit.
So, why do we worry? Because we do. Because we’re human? Is it really human nature?
... we don't believe?
Our mind can only do one thing. Worry or Trust.
Worry saps us of our energy and strength, that's the enemy's purpose! But we can use the same SAP to win over it! SAAP!
Because if we do this.. then we will always be in His grace.
If we are grateful, then we just won’t have time to worry about people who don’t like us, to worry about things we don’t have or can’t control BECAUSE we are busy with loving and appreciating God’s blessings and graces in our lives.
Every day, let’s forgive us for not trusting God. Every day, let’s ask for forgiveness from God for not trusting Him enough.
.... and this is the key!
So next time we are torn between worrying and trusting, let’s all lookup, and look at the birds in the sky, and think about God.
