How to Handle Your Worries

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

What was your #1 worry twenty years ago?

Ten years ago?

Let me make it easy. What was at the top of your worry list five years ago?

There’s a good chance that you don’t remember. But even if you do, it’s unlikely that it’s the same thing that’s messing with you now.

What happened to that this-is-going-to-ruin-my-life anxiety?

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. Still, they invade our brain, chew up significant chunks of time, and make life miserable.

The Bible offers a simple—if not easy-to-follow—solution: “Give all your worries to [God], because he cares about you” (1 Pt 5:7).

Has worry ever fixed anything for you?
