Do you worry?

by Kerry

I am a worrier.

I’m less of a worrier than I used to be. That’s good! But the Bible tells me any worry equates with still sinning. Lack of trust.

Ugh, I still fall short.

And yet, He still promises to lead me. He can handle it. He has handled it. Why must I worry?

I love this quote I read in Linda Dillow’s Calm My Anxious Heart. {She talks about worry and anxiety and our obsession with control. This F. B. Meyer quote she inserted stood out to me}:

This is the blessed life – not anxious to see far in front, nor eager to choose the path, but quietly following behind the Shepherd, one step at a time. The Shepherd was always out in front of the sheep. He was down in front. Any attack upon them had to take him into account. Now God is down in front. He is in the tomorrows. It is tomorrow that fills men with dread, God is there already. All the tomorrows of our life have to pass Him before they can get to us.
