Grace morning on this winsome and wonderful Wednesday.
What are you worried about today? Stop and give the situation to God. Even if your prayer is “God, I don’t know what to do. Please take this over and help me.” He will help you.
When we worry about something, we put ourselves through the same physiological state as if the event was actually happening. Our brain knows the difference between what’s real and what’s imagined, but our nervous system does not. Worry puts our bodies in a state of emergency – fight or flight.
Our blood pressure goes up. Our heart races. Our stomachs produce extra acid to digest what’s there. No wonder worriers end up with ulcers. The body doesn’t know the difference between a real emergency and an imagined one.
It can be very easy to slip into a state of internal panic. When we see our bank accounts shrinking, our company garnering rumors of closure or lay-offs, anxiety starts creeping into our hearts.
God doesn't want us stressed because stress makes Him look like He doesn't care about us or that He's unable to take care of us.
God gave us His one and only son -- to free us from every curse, chain and consequence so that we may freely pursue His promises.
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
Matthew 6:34 MSG
Give your worry to God in prayer. If you’re still worried about it after you’ve prayed, then give it over to God again and again and again. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this worry-less Wednesday!
