Do you constantly worry about everything that happens, what’s going to happen, or about your current circumstances in life? Do you doubt that things will ever get better, or that life could actually be good? Could it be said that you are actually addicted to worrying and afflicted with doubt?
It’s a thought I hadn’t taken much account of until I recently read about it in Joyce Meyer’s, Battlefield of the Mind. There are times when we all worry about something, but has worry become what we do on a regular basis? And if we don’t have something to worry about ourselves, do we worry about it for someone else? For some this may be a tough one to swallow.
“It is absolutely impossible to worry and live in peace at the same time”.
Our lives are intended to be of such high quality that we enjoy it to the fullest. Jesus came that we may have, and enjoy life so much so that it bubbles up and overflows! One of the ways that satan tries to steal that joy away from us is to make us worry. And really, what do we gain by worrying in the first place? Besides anxiety and fear that is… both of which are not what God intends for us.
I revel in the fact that God already knows what we need, even before we ask it of Him. In no way do I doubt His goodness and love for us. Because really, I would never sacrifice one of my own children for you, and I fully expect that you would never do it for me. We cannot even begin to fathom that kind of love.
