What To Do With Worry!

Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought of the things for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matt. 6:34) 

Here's a question worth your time: What are we to do when worry comes knocking on the door of our mind? First, we must set our minds on Christ. "Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you" (Matthew 6:33). When the temptation to worry first arrives, that's the critical moment. The tendency is to entertain it. To let it onto the front porch and allow it to sit there. But before you know it, worry has crawled in through the window and made itself at home! No, worry must be stopped. We have to decide that we are going to commit this worry to God right now and refuse to entertain it, even on the front porch of our thinking. 

Perfect Trust 

It's absolutely true! Worry gets us nowhere. In my honest opinion, worry does nothing more than just simply drain the energy of our present joy and any future accomplishments. My dear friends, we have a choice to make. We can either attempt to tackle on whatever it is that worries us on our own and fail in the process or we can give all our cares to the Lord in prayer while at the same time exercising due diligence as the Lord leads us. 

So then, what do we do with all the worry that surrounds us on a daily basis? The answer to that question has materialized in our lives over 2,000 years ago in the person of Jesus Christ. It was Jesus Himself Who took it upon Himself to carry the weight of human worry on His shoulders for me and all of you. Yes, the answer lies in Jesus. We must give Him all of our worries. 

With so many things that are happening all around the world beyond our control and the constant worry that it creates, the only solution to all of our cares, especially those cares that are beyond our control, is Jesus. Only Jesus can provide us with the peace that can surpass all understanding and any resources that we have at our disposal. Jesus is the only Person Who can truly satisfy any and all worries we have. Always remember that!

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!. . . . :-).
