As the year comes to an end, let go of the cares and worries of life. You are not meant to carry them around. Travel light and enjoy the season.
Do not panic or worry about anything. God is everywhere and He knows all things.
Instead of worrying, pray.
Instead of stressing, worship.
Instead of being depressed, praise God.
Instead of resisting, surrender.
Instead of giving up, have faith in God.
Instead of talking about your problems, count your blessings.
Instead of striving for more, be thankful for what you have.
Instead of entertaining doubts, hold on to God’s words.
Do Not Worry!
These are the words of Jesus. If worrying is the solution why would He say otherwise?
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Matthew 6:25, NKJV.
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns: yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26, NKJV.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34, NKJV.
“When you are in troubled and worried and sick at heart
And your plans are upset and your world falls apart,
Remember God’s ready and waiting to share
The burden you find much too heavy to bear–
So with faith, “Let Go and Let GOD” lead your way
Into a brighter and less troubled day” — Helen Steiner Rice
“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.”―
“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ―
“Whatever is going to happen will happen, whether we worry or not.”―
“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” ― Eugene H. Peterson.
May your worries be light. May you grow in peace and wisdom and soar to greater heights.
