Worry is a habit. The more you do it the more worried you become

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.” By Leo Buscaglia

I used to be a worry-holic. If there was nothing to worry about I would invent one. Life was miserable not only for me but for my loved ones as well. Of course I tried to fix it in my own way. Ego and pride was ruling! But what does the Word of God say?

1 Peter 5:7-9; “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”

Philippians 4: 8; “Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”

We have to be aware of the devil's tricks. We should never give him the opportunity to invade our peace. Further still, we should let go and let God be God. On our own we can do nothing. If we depend on His Word and let the Holy Spirit guide and lead us, anxiety and worry will never run our lives. Our confidence in the promises and the blessing of God can easily be measured by Our reactions to circumstances around you. Worrying means that we are carrying the burdens which Jesus took to the cross.

Quit worrying, it interferes with the body's functions and chemical balance by creating substances that are harmful to health.
