I have spent many hours worrying about things that ultimately never happened. While I still worry a little, not nearly as much as I once did. I am glad for the deliverance I’ve received thus far. Continually seeking God to pour into my spirit. To overcome any remaining worry and fear. I always ask that I am chased down by His perfect peace.
I am the first to raise my hand and admit that overcoming worry is not an easy task. It takes time.overcoming worry is not an easy task. It takes time. w/@yimwriteous Click To Tweet
It is not easy. Many of us are so accustomed to living in fear. It is second nature and we always have our guard up, expecting something bad to happen.
However, we must throw our hands up and tell God, “You take it, I don’t want it!” Besides, He has already told us to cast our every care upon Him as He cares for us unconditionally.
Worry does not stop bad things from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good things.
I’ve learned that worrying and its counterpart, fear, can be helpful at times as they are natural emotions. They can motivate us into action.
Worry and fear should not be denied but, they most certainly have to be managed. If they aren’t, they will have us so consumed with the thoughts of “what if,” that our minds will run away. It’ll begin to conjure up all types of ill-placed and worst-case scenarios.
These emotions can and will cause paralysis and anxiety. These physical and emotional feelings have confined so many to their own private prisons. Instead of functioning in their God given abilities.
I know it well.
Worrying will zap you of your emotional strength, confidence and energy. All while causing challenges that can, and will, interrupt your entire life. However, you can train your brain to stay calm, release unhealthy thoughts and focus more on the positive.
Worrying is contrary to what God teaches us in His Word. No matter how challenging it may be, we must make a conscious decision to stop worrying and start living — Have faith. The Word of God has the following to say about worry. Reflect and saturate your spirit with these thoughts and begin to live a life of joy, peace, security and hope.
KEY – Worrying will only take away from our lives and never add anything to it. We must believe with everything in us that God has us covered and keep the faith.
KEY – Just decide that you cannot handle it and turn it over to God by taking a deep breath and letting it all go.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
KEY – Accept this as a personal blessing and believe that you have God’s peace with you all day.
KEY – Speak kind words over yourself and confess the Word over your situation as His words will never return to him void.
KEY – Know that God will not allow anything to happen to you if you remain in His Word, seek Him, seek His kingdom and seek His righteousness as the righteous will never be forsaken.
KEY – If you put all of your faith in God and do not focus on figuring everything out (just let life flow) and acknowledge Him as your source and He will certainly direct your path.
Let’s just live life and remember, “Worry does not stop bad things from happening. It just stops you from enjoying the good things.” But, God can stop the bad and make it all good!Worry does not stop bad things from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good things.… Click To Tweet
