Worrying about Worry

No matter how dark the night, or bleak the news…

No matter how difficult the trial, or long the test…

No matter how unfair it seems, or how much it hurts…

Just don’t worry!

Though you’re toiling the same soil, yet the fig tree has no bud…

Though you’ve prayed and prayed some more, no answer is in sight…

Though you’ve loved, said a kind word, but a slap returns instead…

Just don’t worry!

Whether your anxiety is real or anticipated,

your fear happening or imagined in your mind…

Whether uncertainty has drained your spirit,

blown your smile away with the wind…

Even here, just don’t worry!

Why? Philippians 4:6-7

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

A worrier? Don’t worry. Make your request.

Be blessed until next time! 🙂

  1. Hi Cynthia. Happy to hear from you here! It is absolutely true, especially for me and my life. So much of my life I missed enjoying the present because my head was always a month, a year into the future, anticipating outcomes before they happened. Then, when reading scriptures that said, “don’t worry,” I felt bad and wondered, “How do you do that?” Lol. Thank God, He helps us when our brains take off to where we shouldn’t be. Bless you, my friend! 🙂


  2. Ellie, this was so right on time. Thank you for reminding us. I still struggle with patience so this helps to calm my overactive mind. Be blessed!


  3. I’m happy it was an “on-time word” for you Stephanie. God knows what and when. 🙂 I too have an overactive brain that moves too far ahead, causing me to miss the beauty of today. Let’s pray for one another. Bless you dear!
