Chapter 8, Page 23, Book 19

When you worry about things beyond your control, stressand anxiety begin to creep into your life.

Joyce Meyer

August 23rd - dont worry, pray more

Blessed is the person who is too busy to worry in the daytime and too sleepy to worry at night.

Leo Aikman

The world is full of worriers. Some are occasional worriers, some are chronic worriers, But I doubt there are any of us are able to escape the woes of worry all together. Someone once said the best way to live a long life is to get some else to do the worryingfor you. 

Worry is like a rocking chair It will give you something do do but it wont get you anywhere.

Vance Havner

 I think that Worry is the opposite of faith. I have faith that if I turn my problems over to God, he can handle them much better than I every could. Nothing is impossible for Him. Let Go and let God. 

We don’t have control over everything, but we can control how we deal with our circumstances. It’s a choice we all have. 

So instead of worrying, pray more. He can and will supply all our needs. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the days own trouble be sufficientfor today. Living one day at a time, and not worrying about tomorrow is the best way to live. Neither looking forward nor backwards is going to make you feel better about how things are right now, right here. If we spend our lives trying to make time pass quicker until what ever it is happens, sooner of latter we’ll run out of time altogether.

The prescription for anxiety then is that those who wait upon the Lord waste no time, and do not have to worry. Do good and keep too busy to worry and youll be too tired to worry at night Dont worry about anything, instead, pray about every thing and thank Him for all he has done. Then you will know Gods peace. Phillippians 4: 6-13

Im too blessed to be stressed!

Worry is a waste of time, do something and pray instead.

I admit that I am a worrier. I do tend to dwell on things more than I should. I do try to pray about them and remember scripture that will help me not to dwell on this and be less anxious. Its a learning growing process for me.

I went to bed last night - just repeating Jesus - Jesus - Jesus and so forth. I think it really helped.

Good one! I'm doing better!
Yet this morning, pulling out onto the freeway to Montgomery (interview) my nerves got the best of me. My singing voice isn't anything to brag about, but from out of no-where came the lyrics to that old Don Williams tune, "Lord, I Hope This Day is Good."

You again state some facts. We can actually cur down on worry, but you are right very few can ignore it altogether. I wish I could Never Worry, but I sneak off and do it anyway at times. And like the one graphic says, it doesn't fix a thing.
Love sent to you,
Sherry & jack
