How many of us worry?

Show of hands?

That’s what I thought… It only comes natural. It’s what we do… But we’re not supposed to. Tough stuff, huh?

I had an extremely close friend call me a few days ago with potentially bad news about her health. It can go one of two ways. You know… Good, which would be awesome! Or… The dreaded “C” word. This friend and her family have NO time for this. Another dear friend of mine is facing other physical ailments and pain. I worry for both of them…

I can’t help but say, “God, why? Why now? Why at all?”

He reminded me of Philippians 4:19-20

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

When things like this in life happen… whether the every day worry or the great worry… it’s all up to Him. He knows what’s going on. He knows what he’s doing. Better than we could ever understand.

In other scripture he says:

22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22


God does not want us to worry. He wants us to cast our fear, worries, burdens, etc… upon Him! He has not given us a spirit of Fear, but that of a sound mind!!! (2 Timothy 2:7) There is no reason for us to sit and twiddle our thumbs and say “Oh my, this is bad. Can’t do anything, so I’ll just sit here and worry…”

It is the time to get on our knees as He has called us to do and give it all to him!

Will you join me? Will you let me know what to pray for in your circumstance? I don’t make an offer I don’t promise to follow through on…

God bless & DON’T WORRY!
