The "W" word


I love it when I worry about things before they even happen like the trip my husband may or may not take. Isn't that crazy, absurd and such a waste of time? Unfortunately I find myself doing it all the time, ugh. But good news I'm starting to catch on and I'm just choosing to stop. To create an imaginary switch inside my head and move it quickly to the off mode, enough of the senseless chatter in my head!
 Who's with me?!

I need to do this more! I am constantly worrying and it leads to absolutely nothing except wearing myself down and making me crabby. Thank you for the encouragement!

I love the idea of thinking of an imaginary switch! My devotional this morning spoke about CHOOSING supernatural responses of "trusting and thanking God." I appreciate your post.

I'm finding that when I focus on God's goodness and the gifts that He surrounds me with, I focus way less on fear and worry <3 Have you read 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp? I strongly recommend it if you haven't <3

Amen! That is totally me, thanks for sharing Maria.

This is such a timely word! I just had a conversation about this at dinner tonight. It was particularly about the anxiety that comes the moment I lay my head down on the pillow. I often have to choose not to worry and instead be still (mentally). Unfortunately, I've fretted 20-30 minutes away before I finally realize this. Thanks for reminding me, Anne and Lorraine R., that I can replace the worry with thinking on good things: WHAT God has done in my life and HOW he has done it!
