What Me Worry

WORRY, ANXIETY

 

When I look through my bible I have more verses marked about not worrying than almost any other subject; seems more people suffer from anxiety than almost anything else. So here’s my short list.

  1. Jesus instructs us not to worry about tomorrow; about food, clothing, etc.

Matt. 6;25-34

 

Matt. 6:25. I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

 

Matt. 6:26,28. Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. . .And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.

  1. Take one day at a time, and don’t borrow trouble.

Matt. 6:34. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.

  1. Don’t be anxious, but pray.

Phil 4:6-7. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  1. Cast all your anxiety on the Lord.

1 Peter 5:6-7. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he care for you.

  1. You can discover the secret of tranquility.

Ps. 37:3-7.

 

Ps. 37:3. Trust in the Lord and do good.

Ps. 37:4. Delight yourself in the Lord.

Ps. 37:5. Commit your way to the Lord.

Ps. 37:7. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.

  1. Anxiety weighs a person down.

Prov. 12:25. An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.

 

Prov. 14:30. A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

 

Prov. 17:22. A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

 

One of the greatest secrets we can learn, is we are not in control of almost anything; and we need to stop pretending that we are in control. That also means letting God be God.
