Trust In God And Do Not Worry!
Do not worry; worrying doesn’t help! God says do not worry and that we ought not to be anxious about anything, but then why do we still worry? Have you ever thought that God tells us things we ought to do, and did you realize that the things He tells us are for our own good!
Worry is like rocking back in forth in a rocking chair, you may get the feeling you are getting somewhere, but in reality, you are wasting your time! When rocking in a rocking chair, you may seem to be doing a lot, but in reality, you are getting nowhere at all. Which is just like worrying, you get nowhere at all, but then why do we still do it?

Do Not Worry About Your Life!
Doing everything with one arm, being well-known, and having a book and a movie, it’s fairly abnormal. As far as just not having to worry about past experiences, I’ve healed very well. ~ Bethany Hamilton
Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
What Does Worry Actually Do To You?
“Worry divides the mind. The biblical word for worry (merimnao)) is a compound of two Greek words, merizo (“to divide”) and nous (“the mind”). Anxiety splits our energy between today’s priorities and tomorrow’s problems. Part of our mind is on the now; the rest is on the not yet. The result is half-minded living.” ~ Max Lucado
What Is The Cause Of Your Worry
Before we can overcome a problem, we must understand its underlying cause. Worry is like a weed. If you don’t rip it out by its root, it will continue to return and grow. If not dealt with, it can choke out the beneficial things God intends to grow and flourish in your life.
The weeds of worry grow in the soil of insecurity. If you want peace, you must plant yourself in solid ground. The Apostle Paul said his letter to the church at Philippi.
Paul reminded these believers their real security was derived from their citizenship in heaven, not Rome, and from their Savior’s power to bring everything under his control (Philippians 3:20–21).
It is easy to focus on earthly things and depend on them to keep us safe or happy. If we place our confidence in anything other than Jesus, we will end up in the shifting soil where worries thrive.
Instead, root your hope in the surety of Christ. In this ground, peace flourishes no matter the circumstances because our Lord is always near and in control. The right source of assurance prevents disturbing thoughts from taking root in the first place. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6)
