What Me......Worry?

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:27

It was the Mad Magazine character Alfred E. Neuman who used to say "What Me, Worry?"  Many people say they don't worry but  really do. Is it possible to get a grip on this area in life? The answer is yes, but you have to want to. 

There may be moms  who fret when their children are at school they will be hurt. Or possibly adult moms constantly wanting to hear from their adult children to insure they are okay. Life can't be lived in this fashion and stay peaceful. 

Try not carrying your phone everywhere 'just in case' there is an emergency. Back in the day before 24/7 mobile intrusion we were doing fine so why not now. If you really want to be worry free go on with life not wondering about all the bad that 'might' happen. Worrying won't change the future but will make your present life miserable and stressed. It has been said worry and stress are linked to illnesses. Do you want to have a calm spirit and trust God?  Do what it says in 1 Peter 5:7 and truly "cast(throw) your cares on Him." 

PRAYER: I don't want to be known as a worrier.  I want to be a warrior on my knees who trusts you for things going on and realize I can not change things or predict the future. In Jesus' name. Amen.
