Worry Is A Waste Of Time

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22

There are many things in life that can cause us to worry. You lost your keys. The alarm did not go off and you will miss your flight. Your child just let you know they were quitting college. A terminal illness was diagnosed. Somehow you misplaced your credit or debit card. 

I have news for you if you don't already know. Worry will not change one of those situations and in fact can exasperate it due to the stress it creates. The best anecdote for bad news is to go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to keep you peaceful. Don't even 'go there' as the saying goes but instead as the verse for today says "cast" or throw your burdens on the Lord. "But I can't help it, I'm a worrier." Nonsense. Break that bad habit right now and purpose in your heart to not allow the devil to weigh you down with cares you can do nothing about. 

Start out each day praising God and you will have little time to fret.

PRAYER: Jesus is the answer to the cares of this world. He wants our burdens. Help me let go of unnecessary stuff dragging me down and free my mind to be peaceful. In Jesus' name. Amen.
