This is a real problem for me…the cause of all of my anxiety! WORRY WORRY WORRY! I know I am supposed to put it in God’s hands, and when I do, He keeps and protects me. I KNOW this. I have experienced miracles in my life that can only be from God.
“Therefore, I say to you, don’t worry about your life, what you’ll eat or what you’ll drink, or about your body, what you’ll wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothes? . . . Your heavenly Father knows that you need them. Instead, desire first and foremost God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, stop worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:25, 32-34, CEB).
If I know all of this, why do I still worry??? All of this worry about what could go wrong, or worry about how a crisis is going to be averted, or worry about the well-being of my family and friends… So much WORRY!
The movie, “Bill Cosby: Himself” is one of the staples I grew up on. (btw, my parenting style is 50% Cosby Show, and 50% Rosanne!) I recently introduced James to it’s enlightenment. I perhaps should not have done this, because now he makes fun of me because I am evidently CONSTANTLY wearing the cursed mom face…out of worry and weariness.
How do I just allow myself to have some PEACE and live in the MOMENT? I mean, I see people do it all the time? How do they do it?! How do you do it? If you have ANY tips, please comment them below…I could use some suggestions.
