Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Proverbs 3:6
Our world is training you to be worried. Almost everybody wants you to be worried because they benefit. Businesses want you to say ‘oh what will people think of me unless I buy that car?’ ‘What will people think of me unless I buy those clothes?’ The more you worry about products and the things you ought to own, the more businesses flourish and thrive. Politicians love it when you worry. Worry is the pervasive anticipation of evil. Worry is the opposite of faith. Worry is located in your body and today we’re gonna be free of it. You want it? Let’s get rid of it! Let’s stop worrying and let’s be happy and let’s enjoy every day, every moment, every breath God has given us.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for the freeing power of your love. Help me to get rid of my worry and embrace the joy only found in you. Amen.
REFLECTION: What specific worry am I going to give to God today?
