How To Stop Worrying

 

Worrying a lot is like watching the BBC News every day!

It feels useful, but 95% of it is a complete waste of time and energy. Most news articles leave you feeling sad and hopeless. Worrying only leaves you feeling miserable and steals your joy, so you can never be grateful for what you do have.

My definition of worry: The constant thought that something in the future won’t turn out the way you want it to.

Here are 3 ways to stop worrying:

 

1. 9 Words.

If you are ever consumed with worry, remember these 9 words.

‘The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.’

Because God is your shepherd, he knows everything about you, even more than you do. He knows your past, present, and future!

Psalm 139 says:

‘O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.’

God also knows what you need and he will give it to you if you trust him.

‘And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.’

The last 4 words are important. What we ‘want’ is always the cause of worry. We want a good job, or we want a person to like us. We worry because we think we won’t get what we want.

But maybe God has something better planned for you than that job, or that person, or more money.

‘They who wait upon the Lord will get new strength. They will rise up with wings like eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not become weak.’

Those who wait and delay their gratification will get everything they need and much more.

So, there’s no need to worry.

 

2. Don’t worry, just worship.

Occupy your mind with something healthier. There aren’t many better ways to do this than worship.

Worship can take so many forms. Saying thank you to God that he made you, and that he loves you, is worship. Or you could dance around your house like a hyperactive 10-year old to your favorite worship song. There’s something for everyone…

Asking Jesus for something to change and your mind will be focused on him, not your worry.

Thank him for what you do have. If you think you have nothing, you still have Jesus and the ability to change. That’s all you need.

3. Is this useful?

If you find it hard to focus your mind on Jesus, ask yourself.

Is this useful?

I like how this question is phrased. It encourages you to do something about your worry. Rather than wasting time and energy, you can change the thing you’ve been worrying about.

Always ask God for wisdom and if it is the right thing to do before you do it. But if it is, go do that thing baby!
