Choose your thoughts carefully.
The Apostle Paul said to think about these things: “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy” (Philippians 4:8). I always ask myself: Why worry about what I can’t control? Why worry about what might happen when I can choose to think about good things that are happening? And, lots of good things occur every day—when I choose to think about them.
This really is the key to worrying less. The more I trust—the less I worry. I can step up my faith because I know God is on His throne. He has a plan and He will do what is best. Every time! And listen, the key to trusting Him more is simple—spend more time with Him. Like any healthy relationship, it grows stronger with time and effort. The more you know God, the more you will love and trust Him.
Here’s to a worrying less lifestyle! Who’s with me?
