The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety. — George Mueller
Nowadays we are all bombarded by different noises in this world may it be physical which includes war, cars, mouths armalite (gossips, slanders) 😅etc. It could be emotional and mental. But the worst of all this noise is the mental which weigh heavy in our hearts. As we began to want things and pursue things we dont have we neglect the beauty and essence of what we really have now. When contentment is out of the picture then discontenment filled with wistful desires happen. We started to worry of what we dont have but when we have it we asked for more. Weird people are we!.. When the weather is hot we complaint and wanted cold.. When it is getting real cold we are worrying of the effects not of it’s goodness. When it is raining for just 3 days we complaint and worried. Asking why? What if?
We are more likely to worry when the pocket is empty or almost empty like there’s no way it can be enough for the food the whole day, for the payment of tuition fee, this and that. It made me sing “worry worry worry must be funny in this world” .😂
Why are you worried? What makes you worry? Surely I can get many answers in these quests or none at all. It depends on you anyway. I believe it is natural for us to be worried it is part of us human you’ll say since we are born emotionally active. I somehow agree I have the same view so I let worries sink in to my mind down to my heart until there’s no way that I can do with it. Then I found out that my ideas about worries are LIES!
Worries are not from light but dark. When you are worried all you could ever think was negativity not a hint of positivity you dwell on it and you’ll be crippled gives you fear and make you feel useless. So dark, isn’t it. It will never be light. Why are we worried? I can tell you one thing this truth you know but deny sometimes. We are worried because of our lack of faith to the Most High God who is the provider and lover of our soul. It hits you!.. It hits me too. I get worried a lot of times but when Jesus helps me know the truth I come to realized that Jesus knows my need and He is my provider. My great, kind and generous provider. I get back on track and started to surrender my needs to His hands. He cares. His hands is upon us all. Only Jesus can give light to that dark area of our lives. You cannot trust anyone but the Lord.
Let us not worry about what we do not have. Worries are not from God. But Faith, love, hope is from God. Let us choose faith over worry. Remember this special TRUTH, Our God provides. He knows our needs even before we say it and the promise is He will meet all your needs. Wants and needs are different love, you should know the difference. Wants are selfish desires, you think it can be better for you but the real thing is not. It will only give a temporary happiness since it is in the form of pleasure. And needs are the exact opposite of it. Let us want what we need so we can have contentment and we can be worry free.
Where is the best place to take your worries? Take them to God. Take your troubles, fears, disappoinments, doubts, weaknesses to Him and leave them all there. Seek protection from the One who cannot be moved our Rock; from the One who offers eternal salvation — Jesus. Cast your burdens to the Lord, He will sustain you. Then feed it with God’s words for His words are true and final it is yours to take it is His promise, believe and receive it love.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all this things shall be added unto you. -Matthew 6:33
Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. – John 14:1
Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself sufficient is the day of its own trouble. – Matthew 6:34
