Worry is a waste of time. Worry cannot produce anything of value. All that comes from worry is more worry. Worrying can so easily become a way of life. We worry if people will like us or not. In this social media age, to be “liked” or “friended” can become an all-consuming worry. We worry whether we will be good parents, we worry about work, and we worry whether we will be able to pay our bills, or if our health will fail. We worry about the future of our country and we worry about the future for our children. We worry about germs, traffic, terrorism, global warming, and so the list can go on and on...
When we look around us and we see worry everywhere, we need to be reminded of Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV).
'Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.'
If we are not careful, worry can consume us like a fire, destroying everything around us. When we lift our eyes above the worry that smoulders in front of us, and remember that God’s mercies are new every morning and his faithfulness will never fail us, then we can greet each day with a smile of gratitude instead of a frown of worry.
