Worry. According to the New World Dictionary the word ‘worry’ means, a troubled state of mind; anxiety; distress; care; uneasiness. However, I would like to add some physical attributes to this definition such as nausea; heart palpitation; perspiration; walking in circles. Insert picture of me.
I tend to worry. I worry over insignificant things. I worry over potential obstacles. I worry about others. I worry about things I have no control over.
I am not willing (or cannot) to make public about situations and/or obstacles that may be happening in my little world. But tonight I came to the realization that something I had feared is actually a reality. I have no control over it. Here it comes…Worry. Fear.
When I worry, I pray. Because recently I have realized that I have to give it up. I have to give it up to God. I give Him my worry, my fear. God states, “Do not fear” in the Bible over 300 times. I must trust in Him. I read Philippians 4:6-7 and feel comfort. I read Mark 10:27 and know there is hope. I ask a favor of my friends tonight: please leave me your favorite “comfort” scripture. So tonight when I can do nothing else, I can read through those and then PRAY.
