Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.
– Eckhart Tolle
Worry doesn’t help. It doesn’t make life better. It doesn’t improve a situation.
Worry is our mind hyper-focusing and meditating on problems. It is easy to think this will somehow help, but it does not.
Worry feeds secondary emotions like anxiety, depression, and anger. That is not helpful.
Worry is also a natural occurrence. Our brain loves to spring into action to scan for potential problems and obsess on them. It’s a normal things our brains do.
But hanging out in worry only seems necessary. It is not.
Our best work comes when we are centered in emotions like confidence, capable, determined, hopeful, and peace—not from worry.
Make peace with what is out of your control. You can control your mind, emotions, attitude, and actions. The rest is out of your control. And that’s okay. It doesn’t mean anything has gone wrong. This is the way it has always been.
And you can trust that God will work all things together for good. Ask yourself if you really believe that. If you don’t, ask God to help you with your unbelief.
Give your mind, heart, and soul a break and let go of the worry. It doesn’t serve you or anyone else.
