I have a confession to make. I tend to worry… a lot. At times, I am prone to overthink things, situations, and outcomes. Things that do not happen yet, I often think they will happen for sure.
I worry about a lot of things. I worry about the future. I worry about my family. I worry about money. I worry about my health. I worry about the Golden State Warriors not winning the championship this year. Well, that’s a bit extreme, but honestly, at times, I think of that and I don’t even know why. I have to admit I am a worrier. But I realized that every worry can be an opportunity, and it is helping me go through every anxiety this world can bring.
Every worry can be an opportunity to trust God.
Every time you don’t know what the future holds, always remember who holds the future. Every anxious thought can be a faith declaration. It can be a confession of faith.
Declare it today: The future may be uncertain but God’s promise is for certain. We don’t know what will happen in the future but God’s plan will prevail for sure!
In the midst of your worries, always know that it can be an opportunity to learn how to trust God even more.
Every worry is an opportunity to thank God.
When we let worry overwhelm us, we can forget how blessed we are. When we worry about the things that we do not have, we forget the things that we already have.
Let your worry remind you to thank God, that even though not everything is in the way it should be, it’s not in the way it used to be.You were not here before, but God brought you here and He will surely bring you there. Thank Him in advance.
Every worry can be an opportunity.
It can be an opportunity to remind the devil that he is not big enough for God. It can be an opportunity to reflect on how to prepare so that what you worry about will not be a reality.
It can be an opportunity to help you accept that not everything is under your control. But remember, just because things are out of your control doesn’t mean it is out of God’s control.
Now, when worry comes, don’t let it overpower your faith.
