Let Your Worries Go

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.

Psalm 42:11

New International Version (NIV)

       One thing I know is that if I left things to my mind's devices I could be in a constant state of worries.  I'd fret myself sick over little things that don't really mean all that much.   My life, my comfort, and my happiness would be obliterated by the big worries that actually can have consequence to me, my loved ones, and the world around me.   There is more than enough for me to worry about and little that I can do about much of it.

         A little bit of faith can go a long way.   God doesn't mean for us to worry ourselves sick or let our concerns about what could happen stop us from appreciating the good things that are happening every day.  We are in this world for a short time.   Let's praise God for what we have,  pray to God for what we need, and love God for the good things that are yet to come.

         We can easily worry ourselves into bad health.   What's the point of doing that?  It's all good--even when it's bad.   Ugly times are eventually followed by beauty.  The world keeps on turning as generations pass in the parade of time.   Trust in God.   He knows what He's doing.

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

Romans 12:12

New Living Translation (NLT)
