A lot is going on in the world right now and there’s the temptation to WORRY.
In some parts there are WARS and rumors of WAR.

However, it’s been scientifically proven that WORRY doesn’t make us better. It makes us feel worse and that could even compound the the complexities of the things we’re worried about.

A thief is person who steals another person’s property, especially by stealth and without using force or threat of violence.

Have your noticed how much time worry can take up- whilst you’re driving, sitting, eating, walking, those thoughts of negativity keep popping up.

It’s difficult to remain enthusiastic while worrying. Worry drains creativity and the zest required for forward motion.

When you’re worried, you’re not fully functional and you have a tendency to burden your relationships with your absence or incessant complaints and anxious thoughts.
Of course, it’s important to have a solid circle of trusted confidants, but even at that, no one wants to feel like a dumping ground for another persons worries.

Focus on God and the good things He’s done.
Pay attention to the many blessings He’s brought your way.
Add value to others and help them when you can.
Worry won’t win. Not today. Not ever.
