There’s a Swedish Proverb that states: “Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow”
As you read this today… you might be worried about something. It’s kept you awake… taken over your thoughts… and made prayer time with God seemingly impossible to get through without distraction. In Philippians 4:6-7, Paul tells us how to deal with these types of burdens: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Is worry casting a huge shadow over your life? Pray and don’t stop until you have an answer. Be honest… blunt… straightforward with your requests. Pray specifically and unceasingly… and when God comes through (and He will in His own perfect way and time)… give thanks for what He does. Worry is destructive and never works. Give your burdens to God… leave them there… and experience a peace like never before.
