Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Phillipians 4:6
Do not worry . . . Matthew 6:25
Is a guilt carrier a natural worrier? Do you worry? Do you worry about what you say or if you said to much, or not enough. Do you worry later if you have hurt the feelings of another? Do you worry that maybe someone doesn’t like you and you don’t know how to fix it? Do you worry about that day at school when your child has a tear-stained moment and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it? Do you worry three days before an event or if something bad will happen? And these are the smaller worries. Our worries grow–we have family members who need healing or are making bad decisions. We worry for those who are out of work, if we are saving money, how to pay for a blown tire, or will we just have enough before the next paycheck. We worry. We worry when we wake; we worry when we hit the pillow at night. We have private worries and no one to share them with.
Breathe. For if God is for you, who could be against you (Romans 8:31)? Why sometimes isn’t that enough, that simple promise from Him. Pray with me–Dearest Lord, Releasing the worry from my thoughts and hands is very hard for me. And yet harbored in my thoughts, the worry does no good except bring me fear and anxiety. Help me to release it into your reach and take it from mine. Help me. We love you God. We trust you. Amen.
Place it at His feet; feel the peace beloved friend.
