Don't Worry, Pray Instead

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Worry and fear go hand in hand. Some people almost feel justified in worrying or being fearful. That was never God's intent to make you uptight and concerned all the time.
Bad news as well as good news is part of life but by you worrying it will not change the situation one bit. Bad doctors' report? Pray. Financial problems? Attempt to cast your care on your Heavenly Father instead of trying to figure things out on your own.

Try to relax and give your situation to the Lord then try not to think about it so much. This takes discipline. We all have issues that are hard to let go of, but for your own peace of mind it is essential you try.

What do you need to give to God today? Now when you give it let Him have it. Trust Him.

PRAYER: At times when bad news comes or bad things happen I need your strength to just relax and be at peace. Help me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
