Death of a love one, unemployment, staying with my in-law, these are just some of the things I dreaded. Last year my grandmother died. My husband is unemployed for three months now and we are staying with my mother in-law. The Lord is giving me the grace, strength and humility to go through with every situation. I saw these things happened. No I’m not a prophet it’s just how worriers think. They think the worst about tomorrow, and that makes them anxious and fearful. That is how I felt in the past. I am a worrier, I’m still struggling everyday not to be anxious. It’s Jesus command not to worry, I want to be a doer of His word. I’m grateful for allowing me to face my fears and worries. The Lord is teaching me so many things.
The anxiety I have before the things happened was worst than the event itself, that means He will indeed strengthen you, help you when things are not good.
That worrying about others doesn’t mean you care.
Worrying is selfishness, when I worry I tend to think of what I can do instead of asking the Lord who is in control for an answer.
Worry and fear reveal who I trust, love and value. When I worry about my finances it shows only that I putting my trust in my bank account.
Worry steals my joy and if I’m not watchful, it will dominate my life and will lead me away from God.
Lord forgive me when I don’t clearly hear when you say “don’t be afraid” “don’t fret” I know you care so much. You are near and you listen. But it seems hard for me to see that. I know you meant what you said, but it seems hard for me to absorb that. When things are not going right, I’m going back again to being a”worrier” I act like I know everything, I act like I can see everything. I act like I can see better than you. Open my eyes that I can see you, that I may see things in your perspective. Father I humble myself to you, hep me to trust in what you say and see the things you have revealed. May you teach me humility so that what you say becomes stronger than what I feel. Amen
For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock. (Psalms 27:5 NLT)
