WHAT ABOUT WORRY?
DO WE HAVE TO WORRY?
DECEMBER 4 PART SERIES
Have we had the wrong mindset about worry? Our society seems to view worry as being responsible. Is it?
To share the truth, I must tell you that I used to worry all the time about everything. My husband said I would worry if the sun was coming up if I had nothing else to worry about. Praise the Lord, this was many years ago when I didn’t haven’t a clue in the world as to how to overcome worry. It can be overcome. Of course, every day is a new day, so we never arrive or we would no longer need faith. It can, however, become easier and easier to live filled with the peace of God; a life free of the habit of worry.
There is something every day that requires vital faith. ~Amy Carmichael
In the month of December, we will look into these following points:
- Worry is a killer
- Worry = Stress = Excess Weight
- Worry can lead to Emotional Eating
- God Commands – Don’t Worry
- How to Overcome
Of course, we know that worry just simply leads to stress big time. Because of the harmful cortisol that is released when we are under chronic stress, worry and stress often also lead to weight gain around the mid section. Have you also seen the correlation between worry and emotional eating? I think it is time for each of us to take another step in becoming free from worry.
