“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God.”
I tend to worry…a lot.
I have worry verses underlined and highlighted in every Bible that I have.
If I am not careful and focused on praying about my worries, then I let them take control of my spiritual and physical health. I have literally made myself sick thinking and pondering over worries in my life…my kids, my students, whether I might have hurt someone’s feelings, flying (or when someone I love is flying)…
The thing is, I know I can’t change situations by worrying! But if I am not focused on God, then I let worries control my thoughts.
This is the best analogy I have heard for worrying:
Worrying is like a rocking chair…It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.
I have to constantly give my worries to God and let Him handle them.
He is in control, and I am not.
So let us truly not be anxious about anything and pray about everything.
