Protection from Worry
We can enjoy protection from worry, even though every day is a new day with new opportunities to fall prey to the plans of the enemy. Since God’s Word tells us not to worry; days without worry must be possible, maybe even weeks, months? This journey of learning to sidestep worry is one I am on with progress, I am grateful to say. The following are some things that have helped me tremendously in past days and years.
Fabufit Component of Being Free from Worry
Replacing worry with Trust from our never-failing Heavenly Father is a component of the Fabufit Journey toward Fabulous Fitness, Abundant Health, and Increased Happiness.
Fill Your Mind with Hope and Encouragement
My favorite source of hope and encouragement is early morning time reading God’s Word and praying. I love finding scripture promises I can write down and think on for the day. During this designated time block first thing in the morning, I also plan the day and read other inspiring things in my remaining time allotted. Right now I am slowly…….. going through a book by Kenneth S. Wuest: Word Studies in the Greek New Testament. It is a treasure house of gold as Wuest goes back to the Protectranslation of words and meanings as they were in original Greek. He says,” The Greek New Testament is waiting like a Virgin forest to be explored.”
Keith Moore of MooreLife Ministries has a free teaching series called “Take No Thought.”. It is wonderful for building faith in this area.
Find Faith, Prayer, Hope scriptures in abundance to strengthen you
Another short source of inspiration is a little daily devotional book called Jesus is Calling. This takes only a few minutes to read but many times contains such a thought to remember. Today’s reading was about Trust and Thankfulness:
Trust and Thankfulness
“Trust and thankfulness will get you safely through this day. Thankfulness keeps you from criticizing and complaining, those “sister sins” that so easily entangle you.” Trust protects you from worry and obsessing.
” Keeping your eyes on Me is the same as trusting Me. (Referring to our Lord) It is a free choice we must make thousands of times daily. The more you trust Me, the easier it becomes.” – Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
Cast all of your cares on Him because He cares for you.
– I Peter 5:7
In FABUFIT we like to daily think on our Gratitudes. This is such a good habit to develop. Friday I will send a simple recipe to cultivate happiness. Have you taken some time to think on your Graitudes for the past year?
