Why Worry?


The pressures of our times have many of us caught in a web of the most acceptable, yet energy-draining sin in the Christian family: “worry” . Chances are good you woke up this morning, stepped out of bed, and before doing anything, strapped on your well-worn backpack of anxiety right?

You started the day not with a prayer on your mind, but loaded down by worry. What a dreadful habit! Jesus challenged his followers with the question, “Who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?” – Matthew 6:27. Believe me, worry solves nothing nor manages nothing.

It creates unrest and uneasiness and, if left unchecked, it can churn our waves of anxiety into a perfect storm of emotions. Add a little imagination and creativity, and our worst fears come to life in technicolour brilliance😊😊. The stress from worry drains our energy and preoccupies our minds, stripping us of our peace.

We fret over big things and little things. Some of us have a laundry list of concerns that feeds our addiction to worry. It’s a very unattractive addiction, yet we somehow manage to make a joke out of it. I’ve heard people say with a smile, “If I don’t have something to worry about, I get worried about not having something to worry about”, “How can I not have anything to worry about with a life like mine?”

Anxiety has become a favourite pastime we love to hate. And worse, we’re passing it on to our children. As they see the worry on our faces and hear it from our lips, we’re mentoring them in the art of anxiety.’

So, what’s the answer? ‘Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything’ “Philippians 4:6”. If there’s a man that can pray, there’s a God that can answer. He was four days late for Lazarus, yet He was still on time. He will come through for you, just TRUST HIM!

    I recommend a song by Dire Straits (Mark Knopfler) called why worry the answer is the song
