Instead of Worrying

“If a care is too small to be turned into a prayer, it is too small to be made into a burden.”—Anonymous

Some people are quite good at worrying. They should be, since they have had so much practice! Many Christians spend a lot of time worrying, even though Jesus tells us not to do that (Matthew 6:25-34). Some of us seem to be as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!

Prayer is the antidote for worry. Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Do you desire more of the peace of God in your life? Then spend less time worrying, and more time praying.
