Life is overwhelming sometimes. We are overwhelmed by work and commitments, overwhelmed by our many future plans, overwhelmed powerfully by our emotions. Our minds are taken over with worry. We stress over everything. We stress over having too much to do, we stress over having nothing to do. We just stress.
So, what do you do when you worry?
You must know first of all that God cares about whatever thing worries you - big or small. So, talk to God about it.
What is Prayer? Prayer is talking to God. So, Talk to God about everything - Pray.
If the cause of your worry is something you have direct control over - like the amount of work you have to do or something in that light, simply ask yourself; What is the next good step I need to do, that I need to take right now. Then do that - Not perfectly but as good as it can be. Take them down one by one. Do not just be there worrying about having so much on your hands and do nothing. Do something.
If you are worried about something that you have no control over - then, you know that your worrying isn’t going to do anything about it. Talk to God some more & try to let it be. (Philippians 4:6-7).
We often forfeit so much peace - all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.
Also, remember that - there may be so much you want but there’s also so much more to be thankful for - Be Thankful.
