What are the top three worries in your mind?
Are any of them within your control?
Are any of them born from envy?
Or are they born from a lack of trust in God?
If you find yourself needing to pray, you can say the prayer I wrote out below.
God in heaven, please sift through my heart and remove my envious and distrusting thoughts.
I know my anxiety stems from my desire for things and knowledge to know the future now.
Give me your eyes so I can see everything that I’ve been missing, and so I can use your blessings to help others.
Teach me to trust in you especially when I cannot see the next steps to take.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
What would your life look like if you actually lived your life with this truth? Would you have as many worries in your mind? Let’s stop wasting minutes and hours on that which is out of our control!
