Instead of Worrying

July 20, 2018

“Worry pretends to be necessary,” wrote Eckart Tolle.

“Instead of worrying, pray,” wrote our old friend St. Paul in Philippians 4:6.

He went on to say, “Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.” Sounds like a call to transparency in our prayers.

He further points out, “Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.” Anybody else just feel that internal sigh of an ahhhhhhhhhhhh?

Paul concludes, ” It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” Why settle for less than that?

Today, let’s practice this: “Instead of worrying, pray.”

Deal?
