''Bring your worry, grief and pain, every cause you have for shame.
Lay it all down, lay it all down.
When your cares have buried you and there’s nothing left to do, lay it all down.
At the feet of jesus, at the feet of jesus.'' - Will Reagan


anxiety, bible, and blue image

Most of the time we think that the number one source of our stress is school, work, friends and/or family, but it's not. Actually it's worrying. Not the things I mentioned keep you awake, but your worries do.

What will happen tomorrow? Will I be able to fulfill the expectations? Will I stay like this forever? Will nothing change? Am I ever going to be happy? Why is God taking so long? Is it my fault, am I delaying my blessing?

The word of God tells us that we don't have to worry about anything. (Philippians 4:6) Why? Because worrying is unnatural. It is one of the greatest weapon the enemy uses to discourage us. Noticed how a small problem gets bigger and bigger the more you think about it?

But to worry about something you cannot change doesn't make sense same goes for worrying about something you can actually change. Stop worrying and start changing what keeps bothering you. It doesn't matter how many steps it takes, take one after another.

Worry Is Unnatural

As I said before, worry is unnatural. It is not something we were born with; but something we learned other the years. Therefore it is not only unnatural but unhealthy too. I have a very ''weak'' body just a little bit of stress caused by worrying is enough to knock me down for weeks.
Our bodies were not designed to handle worries thats why God tells us to cast all our cares and worries on Him. (1 Peter 5:7)
Proverbs 14:30 tells us that only a heart filled with peace will lead to a healthy body.

If we think about, worry has no good side. It does not change anything into something positive, but it makeseverything worse. We get misarable and sick while the problems remain. So why worry?

Are you not a child of the most High? Didn't He created, saved and put His spirit in you? What makes you think that He isn't going to take care of you and your needs?

We need to stop limiting God. Just because we cannot think about a solution to our problems doesn't mean He can't either. Through him everything is possible.

So in order to reduce your unhealthy stress, you need to get rid of this habit of worrying and start relying on God.

He commanded us to be strong and courageous and not to be afraid or discouraged, because wherever we are or go and whatever we are going through He is with us. (Josh 1:9) If you trust in God you will find new strength that will never run dry (Isaiah 40:3).

Everytime you notice you're starting to worry, remind yourself: God personally cares about you and for your needs. So give it all to God and He will handle the rest.

#Prayer Heavenly Father I thank you for taking care of me. Father I cast all my cares and worries on you, because they are too much for me to handle. I trust in you and I know you already have a solution for every single problem, for where my wisdom ends yours didn't even really started. I pray that you will take my anxiety away and replace it with peace. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

That's it for today! Thanks for reading.

Buckle Up and have a nice day. And don't forget you are loved.
