Praying or Worrying

It never made sense to me to pray “And”  worry.  If I am going to worry, why pray and vice versa?  Prayer to me means releasing the issue to God totally.  When I worry, it becomes a god because it is foremost in my mind.  Psalm 112:7 states “He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”

Today my choice is praying and rejoicing, not worrying!

The Right Question

Recently, I was pondering something in my life and questioning the reason behind it.  A light came on in my thinking as rather than asking “Why is this happening” or “When will this end”, I began to wonder “How was I getting blessed by this experience?”  Psalm 112:7 reads, “He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”  Lessons become blessings when understood and seen through God’s (Love’s) eyes.

Challenges

When experiencing a challenge of whatever nature, it is easy to want to work it out through force and human will.  By humbly turning to God and becoming grateful in knowing God is working it out, we release the fear and chaos in our thinking.  Then, and only then, can we begin to see perfection and harmony right where the upset was!  Psalm 112:7 states, “He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”

With God’s help and guidance, I will do this today!
