Why Worry?

Why worry?.. 


Schedules conflict, appointments run long, and our responsibilities never seem to end! 


Now maybe it’s different for you but when I find myself, as I often do, mentally leaving the present situation because my mind wants me to start focusing on where it thinks I should be according to the “plan”, I must remind myself that this is where I need to be and now is where my focus needs to be. 


Wringing my hands, pacing, checking my watch, calendar, or phone, won’t move the time any faster. 


I have learned that the root cause of all of this for me is my fear-based mind’s desire to worry. 


The solution I must force myself at times to grab and hold onto is that God has me right here right now for His own reasons and I need to be awake and present in this moment and not lost in thoughts and worry over my day not matching up with my calendar. 

Worry won’t change a thing, except to make your present situation more uncomfortable… 


Check your experience… 


“Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.” Big Book pg. 417 


Lord, let us trade in our worries for your grace and guidance, AMEN. 


“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6-7 


Have a blessed day Y’all!
