2016


In 2016 I want to choose faith over worry!!

What exactly is worry? Well, worry is nothing more than borrowed trouble. Worry is unbelief in disguise. Worry does not relieve tomorrow of its stresses, it merely empties today of its strength and joy. Worrying will not change anything. Worry can be crippling both physically and emotionally. 


Websters Dictionary defines worry as:

WORRY

verb  wor·ry   \ˈwər-ē, ˈwə-rē\
Simple Definition of worry
  1. to think about problems or fears
  2. to feel or show fear and concern because you think that something bad has happened or could happen
  3. to make (someone) anxious or upset
  4. to cause (someone) to worry 

What the Bible says about worry.
 Jesus said:

25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:25-34
Corrie ten Boom said:"Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength -- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Working does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength."
