I think the song finishes with “when you can pray” but I think the real answer is that it’s because there are simply SO many things to worry ABOUT.
BUT…praying is a better answer, (Philippians 4:6) and although I’ve already been doing that, perhaps I should just start praying that I won’t worry so much.
I hate being a worrier…I’d rather not, but it’s so stinkin difficult sometimes. Am I the only person who will get three miles from home and turn around and drive all the way back to their house to make sure the garage door shut all the way because they don’t remember double checking it? Or the only person who goes to work and can’t remember if they turned off the iron, so they worry all day that the cat will knock it off and it will start a fire? Or the only person who worries that all the conspiracy theories might be true? LOL.
I really do try not to worry. At least about things I can’t control. I just worry that I might do—or NOT do—something I COULD have controlled and something bad will happen and I will regret it for the rest of my life. Or at least for a few days. Or years. Or even worse, that it will negatively affect someone I love for an indefinite amount of time…I just worry.
*biting nails* Some days are worse than others on the worry scale.
I hate worry. I just read this devotional and boy, is it exactly what I need. Whew…think I’ll just go pray now. And if I do it in bed, perhaps I will just peacefully fall to sleep. =)
