I am by nature a worrier, it is the one thing I constantly have to work on. I have a little devotional that I read everyday and yesterday's topic was "why worry". Here's part of what it said "Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not!"(Matt. 6:27) It alters nothing. Worry changes nothing. You don't add one day to your life or one bit of life to your day by worrying. Your anxiety earns you heartburn(which I know alot about :-), nothing more......
First I came across this painting and verse which if you cannot see it, it says, "I will lie down and sleep in peace because You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety". Psalm 4:8 I love this, both the painting and the verse..........
And then I came across something that Max Lucado wrote in the back of one of his books which he wrote about himself but I think we could each put our own names in this. I hope you don't mind me using this Max. :-) This is what he said but I am putting my own blessings in place of his.
Joan has a blessed calling:
Mike calls her sweetie.
Melissa, Jimmy, Christina and Jamiel(my son in law) call her Mom.
Maddie, Cameron and Sydney call her Gommy(grandma).
And God calls her His.
Not bad, huh?
I will remember this when I start to worry again.....................
