Worrying is like a rocking chair..

“Worrying is like a rocking chair — it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere.”
-Martin Luther King

Are you a worrier? (Not to be confused with “warrior”)

Are present circumstances weighing you down?

Yes, I sometimes worry (this week especially) — but here is what I have to constantly remind myself. (Thanks to my future-mother-in-law for the encouragement)

It’s as easy as this. Ask yourself:
“Do you trust God?”

If yes, think about this:
We serve an all powerful God – who spoke this world into existence.

(Is it even possible to comprehend “He spoke the world into existence?”)

Do this:
– Take every thought captive
– Do not allow fear to rule your mind or thoughts.
– Be on guard – the enemy comes to destroy us – first in your minds.

Read this from the one and only Joel Olsteen:
“No matter what may be going on all around you today, you can still live in peace. The scripture encourages us to not let our hearts be troubled. In other words, don’t meditate on all the negative things in this world to the point that it steals your peace. If you have fear, worry or anxiety about anything, recognize that those feelings aren’t from God because He has promised to give you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. There is tremendous power in peace. When you are at peace internally, you can think more clearly. You can hear the voice of God more easily. You’ll make better decisions. Even your physical body responds to peace. The enemy knows this, and his goal is to steal your peace. He tries to set you up to get upset. But when you choose to receive God’s peace, then no weapon formed against you shall prosper. You can live in peace, you can live in joy, and you can live the abundant life God has for you.”

So, whatever your battling — give it up to God, be still, and experience a peace that you can’t even comprehend.

Have a good weekend,
ML
