Worry...it makes you forget who is in charge.
And, when you begin to focus on yourself....the troubles that you are facing (trying to solve the problems you are facing on your own)...you start becoming anxious. You start to worry. Over time, your goals/agenda begins to become more important than God's own agenda for you. Then, you may even find yourself doubting God's judgment.
"Jesus said to his disciples 'Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes." Luke 12: 22-23
"Jesus said, 'Do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?" Matthew 6: 28-30
That isn't to say that the worries/anxieties of this life will vanish and disappear...because, they won't. However, when the worries of this life surface, we can share them with our Lord and turn them over to Him.
"Cast all your anxiety on Jesus because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5: 7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4: 6-7
And, worry is like a rocking chair...it will give you something to do...it can keep you continuously busy. And, JUST LIKE A ROCKING CHAIR...with worry...you never will get anywhere by worrying over your problem. You will be in the same place you started...so, turn your cares over to the Lord above...and, trust that He will see you through
