Worry


I have a history of fear and worry. By the grace of God, I've largely overcome it, but it still raises its ugly head and tries to get a foothold every now and then.

Last night our pastor taught on Luke 12:22-34. He said this about worry:

Worry is a sin directly against God. It says to God, "You are not enough. I do not believe you can meet my needs. You are not big enough to handle my problems. You are not sufficient to take care of me."

I can really identify with this. Worry was modeled for me well by my mom. I grew up to believe if you didn't worry, you just didn't care. About 12 years ago, God used a financial crisis and some words of wisdom from my husband to begin the healing process from worry. Like you, it still creeps up on me occasionally, but boy does it feel good to believe the TRUTH and to be set free!

Worry, worry, worry...
When will I learn that once I have placed EVERYTHING in His hands, He promises to take care of the rest? Whether that means Him totally deleting the circumstance, OR holding my hand and walking me through it!
He is a wonderful Father, isn't He???
Thanks for sharing!
