We all do it from time to time. Even though it's not fun, most of us seem to spend a LOT of time doing it!
worry = anxiety, distress, uneasiness, restlessness, fear, nervousness, agitation, dread, the heebie-jeebies... yikes!
Worry takes up lots of your time, it doesn't accomplish anything... and did I mention this... It's no fun at all! The great news is this...Since God is always with you, there is no need for you to worry about anything at anytime!
So what are you supposed to do with all those emotions, worries, fears...?
Know that God is in control.
There is never a moment when God will not be with you. He knows all about you, your life, your past... even your future. Believe this! He actually has a plan for your life!
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
Trust God with every detail of your life.
He will never leave you. Whenever you feel afraid, remember He is with you, and you are safe in His presence! Talk to Him - Even speak His name. Go ahead and try it... "Jesus!" He will give you strength and peace!
"The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace." Psalm 29:11
Stop thinking about your problems.
Start thinking about God.Worry does not make problems go away. It only adds fuel to the fire! Don't try to handle everything on your own. God is with you, and He is big AND strong enough to handle anything that comes your way!
"For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:30
Give God control of your life.
Don't forget to look to God. God's way is always the best way. God uses all things to work together for good in your life.. even the difficult things... even the things you don't like or don't understand.
"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28
Ask God for help when you don’t know what to do.
Remember that Jesus gave His life for you. He loves you, and there's nothing He cannot do for you!
“As for me, I look to the Lord for help. I look confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.” Micah 7:7
