LIVE WORRY FREE WITH GOD

LIVE WORRY FREE WITH GOD...It is very simple, so why do so few people do it? So many people are so accustomed to worrying everyday about something. If it is not one problem, then it is another. People are always trying to solve their own problems. People can barely "keep up" with all they have to worry about, I do not know how they have the energy.

It must be so stressful, all the time. It drains you.

May I suggest something? Get rid of the word WORRY. GOD DOES NOT WANT YOU TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING. HE WANTS YOU TO LEAVE EVERYTHING IN HIS QUITE CAPABLE AND LOVING HANDS.

GOD only wants you to be "CONCERNED" with things in your life. That of course involves people. HE wants you to be CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN, CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FAMILY, CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FRIENDS, CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR HEALTH, CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR JOB AND CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL SITUATION....BUT GOD DOES NOT WANT YOU TO WORRY ABOUT THESE THINGS.

WORRYING IS A WASTED EMOTION. Years ago, with God's help, I replaced worrying with "being concerned". I try not even to use the word. If I say it, I usually catch myself and quickly replace it with "being concerned". That is exactly what I believe God wishes us to do. You can be very concerned about anything you wish. That is your choice, however, there is a difference between worrying and being concerned.

When you worry, you do not have FAITH in GOD, only in circumstances and events. So that is not good. You should always have faith in God. This means to believe that HE is overseeing everything in your life and he will provide for you and your loved ones. HE will never desert you and leave you empty handed. NEVER. It is not possible. HE loves you and me too much. And the closer you allow yourself to get to Jesus, the more you will feel his Love... His protection and His mercy on anything you have done in your life that your not proud of.

STOP WORRYING! Especially today, with so much bad economic news and hardships people are facing. Save your energy and "be concerned" about your life, but DO NOT WORRY. There is a fine line when you are thinking about what is troubling you...and what is the best way to handle that situation vs. worrying. Worrying becomes all consuming, is stressful and leaves you fearful. When "being concerned" crosses into "worrying"....YOU FORGET ALL ABOUT GOD. You can not do that. You have to remember GOD IS HERE. It is not fiction. Stop yourself from feeling and believing, that everything is on your shoulders. It is not. Most of our troubles, if you want to call them that, can be on GOD'S SHOULDERS. HE SEES ALL AND KNOWS ALL...and HE is very strong. Do not worry about burdening GOD.

There are two important things you must do. Act responsibly to the best of your ability and have love in your heart. No one is perfect and GOD knows that. That is all you must do in order to know that GOD will take care of you and your troubles.

But may I make a strong suggestion, PLEASE LOVE GOD. It is hard to find mere words to describe HIM. But GOD is more than deserving...HE is so sweet, and loving, and kind and thoughtful. Anyone who goes to GOD and invests their time with HIM will feel happy, loved, protected AND SPOILED.

When is the last time you felt really spoiled? I dislike to say, "Loving God has it's rewards, but it is true".

GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH, HE DOES NOT WANT YOU TO WORRY. TURN OVER YOUR WORRIES TO HIM AND TAKE HIS LOVE IN RETURN.
