The literature of faith as well as a mountain of music alludes to learning to get over worrying so much. Jokes are made about worry. Lives are hindered due to worry. Marriages break when one or both people in a marriage worry about the trustworthiness of the other.
If your boss seems worried about you, make every effort to discover why the worry.
As the crucifixion of Jesus was nearing, He sat down to a meal with His disciples, including Judas Iscariot. To comfort them concerning the events of the next few hours, He said:
"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.” John 14:1.
The phrase “Let not your heart be troubled” is a way of saying, don’t worry!
All the worry in the world put together in a nuclear package would not have stopped the events of that night and the next day. The same amount of worry will not change the outcome that you fear.
When all is said and done worry is in its quintessence destructive. Your doctor will tell you that it is correct in the physical, emotional, and spiritual realm. Worry, for the Christian is simply believing that the thing that is worrying you is greater than God!
Dr. William Osler wrote these wise words on Worry:
“All the water in the world However hard it tried, could never sink a ship
Unless it got inside. All the hardships of this world
Might wear you pretty thin, But they won’t hurt you one least bit
Unless you let them in.”
Some have correctly noted that worrying about a negative outcome and attempting to believe the Lord for a positive one, cannot coexist. It’s up to you to choose to believe this simple biblical statement:
Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (NKJV).
