Here is a great article by Stormie Omartian on worry. Please take the time to read it as often as necessary and don't allow worry to steal another day or minute of your life!
Read Luke 12:22-34
"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?" Luke 22:25
"None of us can add a single moment to our lives by worrying. In fact, the opposite is probably more true; we actually lose life when we worry. We are wasting the time we spend worrying, and we may be causing health problems that could ultimately shorten our lives.
Jesus tells us to refuse to worry because no matter what problems we have, He has already overcome them. 'In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.' John 16:33
We can find freedom from anxiety just by spending time with Him. 'When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.' Psalm 94:19
When you are anxious, it means you aren't trusting God to take care of you. But He will prove His faithfulness if you run to Him. 'Do no t set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek His kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.' Luke 12:29-31
God says we don't need to be anxious about ANYTHING; we just need to pray about EVERYTHING. So instead of worrying, actively bring your cares to Him. Prayer is not empty, powerless, wishful thinking. It is a powerful connection with the One who is the source of our comfort, strength, and hope. So take your worries about the future to the One who holds your future in His hands.
PRAYER: Dear God, I pray You would help me to stop worrying about things and start spending more time in Your presence. I know the time I waste by worrying is better used to pray and to hear Your voice speaking to my heart. You are my source of strength, hope, love, peace, and rest, and I want to be connected with You and not the things that worry me.
