Matthew 6:27

"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" NIV

"Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?" KJV

According to the Word of God, worry is a sign we are not putting our trust in the Lord to work out things in our lives. Some of us have a natural inclination to worry. Some of us believe our worry somehow helps. Regardless, worry only makes our bodies tense and our minds stressed. It does nothing to make things work out for the good. It is our spiritual responsibility to stop ourselves from worrying and pray to the Lord about our circumstances so that He will work on it for us. We can then be more at ease to read the Word and pray.

Heavenly Father, whatever the reason, forgive us for the time we spend worrying. Forgive us for not fully trusting that You are working all things for good to those of us who love You. Help us to accept the peace and calm You are so ready to give us so that we will be in the right frame of mind to be open to Your leading. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

I agree. Worrying gets us nowhere except being in the same place where we started. I needed to hear this, thanks!
