Why worry…?

I spent the last few years worrying about how I will make it, how I will survive, how my grades will look after my exams and even about what clothes to wear or what to eat. But I realized Jesus’ words are true “which of you by taking thought (worrying) can add one cubit unto his stature?“.  Worry is a waste of time and energy, I guess we should keep the mindset that time wasted can never be regained and live with the knowledge that we are governed by time. Therefore, don’t spend your precious time worrying.  Worrying will not change the situation, no matter how bad it is.

Worrying leads to guilt, depression, anxiety, sadness, and almost everything that can poison the creative capacity of your soul and mind.  Hence, overcome worry with faith and hope. Keep telling yourself that you can do all things through Christ and you will do all things through Christ.

Remember also  “… whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” ( Philippians 4:8)
