Give all your worries to him.
—1 Peter 5:7
Do you remember what you were worrying about twenty years ago?
How about ten years ago?
Those nail-biters that were keeping you awake back then are now past tense. Like a bad haircut, most of the pesky problems that plague us, given a little time, fix themselves.
But there’s always next season, where we let new worries fill the space that was occupied by the old ones. If the saying is true that we learn from our mistakes, it seems there would come a time when we put worry out to pasture.
Kenneth Taylor, in The Living Bible, paraphrased 1 Peter 5:7 this way: “Let [God] have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.”
Fatigue is caused more by worry than by work.
