A Simple Solution to Worry

Do not worry about your life.
             —Matthew 6:25

What was your main worry twenty years ago? Ten years ago? One year ago? Don’t remember? Even if you do, it’s probably not the same thing that’s needling you now.

What happened to the worry that had your heart racing and your stomach churning? Somehow the unsolvable was solved; you recovered from the unrecoverable; reached the breaking point and didn’t break.

Like a bad haircut, most of the problems that pester us fix themselves and are soon forgotten. They are neither long-lasting nor life-threatening. Still, they chew on us and make us miserable.

The Bible offers a simple—though not easy to follow—solution: “Let him have all your worries and cares” (1 Pet. 5:7 TLB).

Ask for God’s presence in every situation
and every situation will pass without worry.
