Got Warts?

Are you an excessive worrier? Do you find yourself worrying about anything and everything?
Worry is a habit that has negative consequences, for it affects us emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Perhaps you subconsciously think that if you "worry enough" you can prevent bad things from happening. But excessive worrying can lead to anxiety and panic attacks, which cripple you from an abundant life. There's not one good outcome from the habit of worry. Worry will not add one day to your life, but it's sure to shorten it.
The habit can be broken with the transforming power of God's Word. Let God replace your worry with His peace and help you to develop your faith and dispel worry once and for all. Ask for His help and follow His guidance.

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Live one day at a time. Matthew 6:25-34
Father, I pray that You help us to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to find peace in our minds as we cast our cares on You and trust You to take care of them and not pick them back up. In Jesus' name, amen.
